Empire
Empire, build it higher and higher
He's coming for booty
On a black-eyed horse, he'll ride it up the wall
They're gonna set you up pretty, Geronimo
They'll stick you coal-washing at the cigar store for some firewater
Well, Happy Thanksgiving

You know they're coming from burgeon and chippin' in west
You know their burghers really are the best
The king of burgher
Yeah, they got your empire east, you'll probably ask of it
Opportunity's knocking, your empire's building
And you're ready to call it a day
But the wheel's already in motion
Well on the train of tomorrow
Get out of the way
Empire Builder
Well you've got to hit the road pretty mama's boy like an empire
Builder
Well you've got to say goodbye to your mama
Like an empire builder

Peacemaker
Treebaker
Salt Shaker
Earthquaker
Side Shafter
Kingmaker
