Not Even the King Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Money
Some people so poor, all that they've got is money
Oh, and diamonds
Some people waste their life counting their thousands
Verse 2
I don't care what they're offering
How much gold they bring
They can't afford what we've had
Not even the king
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
Verse 3
Oh, castles
Some people so lonely, what good is a castle
Surrounded by people?
But ain't got a friend that's not on the payroll
Verse 4
Oh, and I don't care what they bring
They can have everything
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
Verse 5
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Came charging to get what we got
They offered the crown and the offered the throne
I already got what I want
Verse 6
All the king's horses and all the king's men
They came marching through
They offered the world just to have what we got
But I found the world in you
I found the world in you
Verse 7
So darling, listen
Your arms around me worth more than a kingdom
Yeah, believe that
The trust that we feel the kings never felt that
Verse 8
Yeah, this is the song that we sing
We don't need anything
They can't afford this
This is priceless
Verse 9
Can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
Can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
