Boys, I've got the sign
The pieces fit, the stars align
Now the plan's unfurled
We need the king
The king of the whole damn world

The punks on the street
They won't know what hit 'em
Their Italian suits man
They won't even fit 'em

We'll take 'em down hard
They won't know what bit 'em
They can't even find us
'Cause we just out hid 'em

I'm tellin' you, man
If you're with 'e, best quit 'em
They just can't compete
'Cause we'll just outwit 'em

It's good to be king
King of the whole damn world

He walks by and the people stare
He walks on air without a care
Listen up, just one more thing
This guy's for real
This guy's the king

We'll strike late at night
We won't stop 'til we found 'em
We'll hunt 'em light rats
We'll completely surround them

We'll chase 'em, we'll face 'em
We'll dog 'em, we'll hound 'em
We'll tighten the circle
'Til the rope is around 'em

A bullet I'll take
For the thrill and the cause
We're knockin' out windows
We're tearin' down doors

It's good to be king
King of the whole damn world

When you lead a life like this
You take the shots, you take the hits
Listen brother, I know one thing
It's good to be king

The king of the whole damn world
King of the whole damn world
The king of the whole damn world
King of the whole damn world

King of the whole damn world
The king of the whole damn world
I'm the king of the whole damn world
