LyricsEdit

Oh, oh oh-oh oh, oh oh-oh oh,
Oh oh-oh oh, whoa oh-oh, oh-oh oh,
Oh-oh oh, a oh-oh oh

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets that I used to own

Oh, oh oh-oh oh, oh oh-oh oh,
Oh oh-oh oh, oh-oh oh, oh-oh oh,
Oh-oh oh, a oh oh oh

One minute I held- I used to...
Screwed the words up already... I- no...

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my Chris and I'll be your Gwyneth
My missionaries hiding in foreign trenches

For some reason I can't explain
Once you'd gone there was never
Never an h-h-h-h-honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

Oh, oh oh-oh oh, oh oh-oh oh,
Oh oh-oh oh, oh-oh oh, oh-oh oh,
Oh-oh oh, a oh-oh oh

It was a wicked and wild wind
Like just The Doors' Love Her Madly and let her in

Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become

Revolutionaries wait
For my blonde head on a silver plate
Just a GaGa on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be queen?

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my Chris and I'll be your Gwyneth
For some reason- na, na, foreign trenches

For some reason that I can't explain
I know Yves Saint Laraunt no he won't call my name
Never an h-h-h-h-honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

Now I'm trying my very best not to ruin all the words,
But, so a strong apology to Coldplay,
But I think otherwise it's a good job.

Oh, oh oh-oh oh, oh oh-oh oh,
Oh oh-oh oh, oh oh-oh, oh-oh oh,
Oh oh-oh oh,

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my Chris and I'll be your Gwyneth
The Fame won't change us if we don't let it

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Mary won't call my name
Never an h-honest word
But that was when I ruled the world, ruled the world,
Ru-u-u-uled the world.

Viva La Vida
