I Never Wanted To Be King
--------------------------

I can't even drive my own car anymore
A chauffeur shows up picks and me up at the door
lunch with the Bishop then dinner at four
how did my life become such a bore?

Servants are there all hours of the day
I want to tell them to just go away
eveyone tries for a piece of me
I don't know if I'll ever be free


Fancy clothes and castles they don't mean a thing
all the fame and fortune that royalty brings
All I ever wanted was a simple life
Just a couple kids and a happy wife

If I could I'd give it all away
In the quiet country is where I would stay
Fancy clothes and castles they don't mean a thing
I never said that I wanted to be King


Surrounded by strangers who say that they're my friends
Go to boring parties that don't ever end
maybe we could all just steal away
To an island where we could spend our days

How can I tell them to get someone else
We just want to go live by ourselves
It doesn't seem real it doesn't seem right
Let's Take the kids and dogs and find a new life

Fancy clothes and castles don't mean a thing
all the fame and fortune that royalty brings
All I ever wanted was a simple life
Just a couple kids and a happy wife

If I could I'd give it all away
In the Quiet country is where I would stay
Fancy clothes and castles don't mean a thing
I never said I wanted to be King
