I ruled the world was, king on the throne I'd
make peace in every culture build, the homeless a home I'm
not runnin 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 livin 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 number one 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, If

I ruled the world Huh-huh..
huh-huh, uh-huh uh-huh I'd
love all the girls I.. love em love em baby Black!!
diamonds and pearls ooh.. yeahh yeahh If
I ruled the world People..

started flowin as they reached for my hand I
said "Thank, you for bringin me to the Promised Land But
now I must go say, 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 dancin to the beat and entertainin La-Di-Da-Di The
music started endin it, was time for a speech The
crowd started sittin 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, stoppin 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, votes too I
had so many calls I, didn't know what to do You
know out that office 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 nothin in the world like bein number one KING If!

I ruled the world Huh..
huh huh huh huh-huh, huh-huh I'd
love all the girls I.. love em love em baby Black!!
diamonds and pearls ooh.. yeahh yeahh If
I ruled the world whoawowaahhhyeahhhhhhhh.. if
.. I ruled the world {AJ

Scratch cuts up the track for a bit Now

I rule the world and now I'm, on top And
I'm rollin with folks that could never be stopped And
I'm here to let you know this is where I belong And
to you sucker MC's that sing my song And
it's a song that's STRONG about right and wrong And
I'm rock it to you baby baby all night long And
it's a song about love and, happiness In
a world of peace and, you know that's fresh Now
I'm the KING and, I want you to know That
I'm the Master Blaster Rapper who's runnin the show And
to all of you rappers in every country You
better stop what you're doin and, listen to me Cause
we gotta stop war and, use unity To
fight crime and hunger and poverty Cause
the African baby is dyin overseas While
you sucker mission politicians bustin out Z's Huh
twenty, million people all unemployed While
the rich man try to play Pretty Boy Floyd While
the working class just struggles hard Try
to make ends meet against all odds While
the poor man can't even deal with life You
know he tried to escape and, smoked the coke on the pipe And
it's time for a CHANGE to, a better way Cause
the sun has GOTTA shine through the cloudy day So
LISTEN UP world while, I teach this class And
take heed to the message or we ain't gonna last Cause
I know the, solution is, the contribution Of
woman and man to just join the revolution That'll
take your brain to a higher plane And
help you deal in a world that's gone insane With
the problems that I know we can stop From
the ruler of the world and the man on top But
the years went by and, time was up And
the ruler of the world had ran out of luck And
all the people at the time who said they were my friends Didn't
know me when my job had come to an end They
came up to my face as, happy as can be He
was running his mouth like Muhammad, Ali So
I shook his hand calmly as I headed to the door On
my way to the ghetto to treat once more If

I ruled the world A-huh-huh-huh..
a-huh-huh-huh, I'd
love all the girls I.. love em love em baby Black!!
diamonds and pearls ooh.. yeahh yeahh If
I ruled the world yeahhhhhhhh.. If
I ruled the world if.. I ruled the world I'd
love all the girls I'd.. love em love em baby Black!!
diamonds and pearls ooh.. yeahh yeahh oh, yeah yeah If
I ruled the world whoahahayeahhhhhhhh.. If
I ruled the world yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah.. Yea

love all the girls you.. know I'd love em love em baby Black!!
diamonds and pearls ooh.. yeahh yeahh oh, yeah yeah If
I ruled the world yeayeah.. yeayeah baby babyyyyyyy If
I ruled the world if.. I ruled the world I'd..
