So you thought you could sit back again
Sip a cocktail in the summer rain
Brew some homebrew with some hops and grain
Kick your feet up on a rumbling train
Im king of the world
Im king of the world again
Im not a grass im not a dirty rat
I take my head pills from an old shot glass
And dont forget if you cant take the flak
You should never ever turn your back
So you thought youd rip it up again
Down a pitcher in the pouring rain
Put your foot down in the fastest lane
Burn around the planet on a plane

    So this song is called King Of The World, and is basically the feeling you have when you are unemployed and have absolutely NOTHING on your plate. Its a great feeling of freedom..though I feel things are in the process of changing! Hey nobody is king forever..not in this world
