I gave her that diamond she dreamed of,
And I bought her a home with a view;
I took her to the ends of the rainbow,
But all I left her was blue.

Seems I never had time to love her,
Now it seems time just stands still;
I thought I was king of the mountain,
But I was only a fool on the hill.

Chorus:
Now I'm here alone, after leavin' her lonely,
Lord, I'm livin' with the memory I know I can't kill;
I thought I was king of the mountain,
But I was only a fool on the hill.

Chorus:
Now I'm here alone, after leavin' her lonely,
Lord, I'm livin' with the memory I know I can't kill;
I thought I was king of the mountain,
But I was only a fool on the hill.

I thought I was king of the mountain,
But I was only a fool on the hill...
