Used to Rule the World Lyrics

by Bonnie Raitt

Doctor Feelgood sleepin on a concrete bench
Can I get a witness?
Miss South Carolina 1975, somebody stole your crown.
You were sleeping in your happy home, when you woke up baby,
Your life had come and gone. Now youre mystified, standing with the rest of us
Who used to rule the world.
Brother Lovejoy rappin up a blue streak
Can I get a witness?
Miss Hurricane cant keep your hands still long enough to count your change.
You were wrapped up in your daily grind, the cost of living
It didnt even cross your mind. Now youre mystified, standing with the rest of us
Who used to rule the world.
Mr. Blueprint used to have it figured out
Now you cant find your car.
Miss Cocktaill dress standing at the bathroom sink looking for a back way out.
You cant believe your very eyes. Everything that you were counting on was nothing but a pack of lies.
Now youre mystified, standing with the rest of us
Who used to rule, used to rule, used to rule the world.
