King Pleasure is on a mission
To take the power from the local politicians
He's come to party and he shows it
He rules the world, well, man, everybody knows it

It's King Pleasure time
So show respect, get on your knees
You can't reject his right to praise

King Pleasure is gonna get you
He do not give a damn about who wants to let you
You try to nag him, you try to scold him
They've built cages but no one can ever hold him

He knows your secret, he's got your number
He'll stop you workin' but he'll stop you getting dumber
You wanna hold him, you wanna kiss him
You can't deny it but it's futile to resist him

It's King Pleasure time
So show respect, get on your knees
You can't reject his right to praise

King Pleasure will live forever
You can't control him though you think you're pretty clever
And after computer crashes
He'll be laughing' as he's basking on your ashes

In King Pleasure time
So show respect, get on your knees
You can't reject his right to praise
