“IF I RULED THE WORLD…”

Watch KURTIS BLOW – IF I RULED THE WORLD

[Hook]
If I ruled the world
I’d love all the girls
Wear diamonds and pearls
If I ruled the world

[Verse 1]
If I ruled the world, was king on the throne
I’d make peace in every culture, build the homeless a home
I’m not running for Congress or the President
I’m just here, to tell the world, how my story went
You see – first it was a dream, I was living in Rome
And then I moved to London, bought a brand new home
And everywhere I went, I drew lots of attention
Like a stretch limousine, one of those new inventions
It took a few years ‘fore the day had come
But I was ruler of the world ranked #1
So I headed towards Washington to claim the crown
Let the whole world know that the King was in town
As I arrived the crowd started to cheer
And then someone yelled out, “The King is here!”
So I headed toward stage to make a speech
About the new style of living I was gonna teach, uh-huh

[Hook]
If I ruled the world (huh huh, huh huh huh)
I’d love all the girls (I’d love em love em baby!)
Wear diamonds and pearls
If I ruled the world

[Verse 2]
People started flowing as they reached for my hand
I said, “Thank you for bringing me to the Promised Land
But now I must go, so goodbye to everybody
Tonight I’ll see you all at my Super Dinner Party”
And late that night, at my Super Dinner Party
I was dancing to the beat and entertaining: “La-Di-Da-Di”
The music started ending, it was time for a speech
The crowd started sitting as I rose from my feet
And this was once a dream; I explained to the crowd
But now, I rule the world, and I feel, so very proud
Excuse me please for stopping this show
I just had to thank you all, huh, and me so
My first day in office, the King on the throne
I spent my first three hours on the telephone
You know with newsmen reporters, and voters too
I had so many calls, I didn’t know what to do
You know hours passed I continued to work
I signed so many papers, my fingers started to hurt
Then I shook off the pain, say this ain’t no thing
Cause there’s nothing in the world like being #1 king!

[Hook]
If I ruled the world (huh huh, huh huh huh)
I’d love all the girls (I’d love em love em baby!)
Wear diamonds and pearls (oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
If I ruled the world (whoa whoa yeahhhhh)

{AJ Scratch cuts up the track for a bit}

[Verse 3]
Now I rule the world and now, I’m on top…
