Lyrics by chris cornell
Music by hiro yamamoto

I want to be
A cowboy star upon the screen
Oh hey and I want to drive
My cowboy car across the scene
Oh hey and I want to write
The magazines the housewives read
And I want to be
In control of everything
I want to be king


I want to make the toys
You buy for christmas eve
Yeah and I want to be
The father of the ethnic child
Who stars on t.v.
Oh yeah and i, I want to write
The magazine the housewives read
Oh hey and I want all the leaders
Of the third world
To answer to me
I want to be king
I want to be king
So maybe now the pope
Will bow and kiss my ring
I wanna be king
