                Em                   Am
It's good to be king, if just for a while
                 Dsus2                    Em
To be there in velvet, yeah to give 'em a smile
                 Em                  Am
It's good to get high and never come down
                Dsus2                   Em
It's good to be king of your own little town

           A                       D      G
Yeah, the world would swing, oh if I were king
C G D
     Can I help it if I
C G Em       A                 Asus4  A
     Still dream time to time

                Em                     Am
It's good to be king and have your own way
                 Dsus2                   Em
Get a feeling of peace at the end of the day
                      Em                    Am
And when your bulldog barks and your canary sings
                      Dsus2                    Em
You're out there with winners, it's good to be king

       A                D        G
Yeah, I'll be king when dogs get wings
C G D
     Can I help it if I
C G Em       A                 Asus4  A
     Still dream time to time

It's good to be king and have your own world
                 Dsus2                      Em
It helps to make friends, it's good to meet girls
               Em                    Am
A sweet little queen, who can't run away
                Dsus2             Em
It's good to be king, whatever it pays

C G D
     Excuse me if I
C G D
     Have some place in my mind
C G Em           A            Asus4  A  Asus4  A  Asus4  A
     Where I go time to time
