Money,
Some people so poor all that they got is money.
Ohh and diamonds,
some people waste their life counting their thousands.
I don't care what they offering.
How much gold they bring.
They can't afford what we got, not even the king.
They can't afford what we got, not even the king.
Ohh castles, some people so lonely
What good is a castle ?
Surrounded by people,
but ain't got a friend that's not on the payroll.
Ohh and I don't care what they're bring.
They can have everything.
They can't afford what we got, not even the king.
They can't afford what we got, not even the king.
All the king's horses and all the king's men.
Came charging to get what we got .
They offer the crown and they offer the throne.
But I already got all that I want.
All the kings horses and all the kings men.
They came marching through.
They offered the world just to have what we got,
but I found the world in you.
I found the world in you.
So darling listen,
Your arms around me worth more than a kingdom.
Yeah believe that,
The trust that we feel the kings never felt that.
Yeah this is the song we sing.
We don't need anything.
They can't afford this, this is priceless.
They can't afford what we got, not even the king.
Can't afford what we got, not even the king.
