Well, c'mon darlin'
The stars are burning bright
C'mon now darlin'
Our lick is good tonight

'Cause we're the all time winners
In the all time loser's game
Yea we're the all time winners
And here we go again

The king and queen of America

Yeah, it's the king of nothing
And the queen of rage
With a pile of confusion
Upon a glittering stage

You know we never did anything
To make ourselves feel proud
You know we never did anything
So let's play it loud

Let's hear it for the
King and queen of America

At the mention of your name
Now there's a cool breeze blowin'
Blowin' down the track
That's where I'm goin' and I'm never comin' back

My, my, baby's gonna cry
My, my, baby's gonna cry
My, my, baby's gonna cry
Tonight oh, yeah

Now there's nothing
Comes from nothing
That's what they always say
Didn't mama tell ya, that's the price you have to pay?

Now you can't have your piece of cake
And eat the sweet thing too
But that kind of understanding
Isn't good enough for you

My, my, baby's gonna cry
