king lyrics – deitrick haddon

“king”

you can call me, you can call me king [4x]

i am a king
i was born on the east side
in detroit city

it’s like jungle, but i survived
i used to dream, that i had a pair
of wings and i would fly with the angels
i would hear melodies

than i wake up and i would tell my revalations, but they said, “you’re jus a boy, with a big imagination”. i’m a king.

[chorus:]
call me king
call me king
call me king
call me king
king,

([background repeat:] you can call me, you can call me king)

i am a leader, i’d have to move to the west side, didn’t have no money
i was raised to have some pride, i used to sing, oohoh, sing to ease the pain and i knew one day that my voice would bring change. i am a king

[chorus:]
call me king
call me king
call me king
call me king
king,

([background repeat:] you can call me, you can call me king)

you are a winner, you may have come from the slumbs, but you’re the one. you were made in his image in glory you supposed to be the leader of your home, please understand, my brother, i believe that you can

lead the pain, reach down in your soul and you will reach every goal and the whole earth would know, you are a king

[chorus]

how many nights i cried to get so many others give up try to give in. you don’t remember nothing else i said. gonna get this in your head. you are a king
