i want to be king lyrics – roger waters

i want to be king

make your choice, find your voice

[revolutionary priest]
make your choice, find your voice

[chorus]
i want to be king, queen, courtesan, dauphin
i want to be cardinal, capitaine, king of kings
i want to be god

[solo boy]
i want to be the king

[solo girl]
i want to be the queen

[solo girl]
i want to be the courtesan

[solo boy]
i want to be the dauphin

[solo boy]
i want to be the cardinal

[solo boy]
i want to be the capitaine

[chorus]
i want to be the king of kings
i want to be god

[solo boy]
i am a great big pig

[solo boy]
i am the king of france

[solo boy]
his wife likes to dance

[solo boy]
i am the church of rome
i stand behind the throne

[solo boy]
i am the public purse; they think i’m bottomless

[solo boy]
i am the public accounts; i admit i’m a bit of a mess

[solo girl]
i am the american war and they say i’m rather greedy

[solo girl]
i am the national debt; i’m big but needy

[solo boy]
i am a n*ble

[solo boy]
i am the clergy

[solo boy]
i am the ordinary man

[solo girl]
i am hungry

[solo girl]
i am starving!

[children’s chorus]
the cake needs re-carving!

[troublemaker]
i’m a ravening wolf

[male chorus]
i’m a, i’m a, i’m a ravening wolf

[female chorus]
i’m a, i’m a, i’m a heart of th*rns

[male chorus]
it’s the end of the shield of divine law

[troublemaker]
i’m the oak tree

[children’s chorus]
i am the oak tree and i am the columbine
i am the pig searching for truffles

[chorus]
and i am the peac*ck whose feathers are ruffled
