If I ruled the world I'd love all the girls Wear diamonds and pearls

If I ruled the world If 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 the stage, to make a speech About the new style of livin' I was gonna teach If I ruled the world I'd love all the girls, I love 'em, love 'em, baby Black diamonds and pearls If I ruled the world People started flowin' as they reached for my hand I said, "Thank you for bringin' me to your 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 voters too I had so many calls, I didn't know what to do You know out of 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 I'd love all the girls, I love 'em, love 'em, baby Black diamonds and pearls If I ruled the world, yeah!
