246 Viva la vida

Allen               1 I used to rule the world__.

Seas would rise when I gave the word__. Now in the morning I sleep alone__,

sweep the streets I used to own.

 

Interlude 1 Aah___ (4 X)

 

A + mannen    2 I used to roll the dice

S                      Aah___

A + mannen    feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes,

S                      Aah___

A + mannen    Listened as the crowd would sing:

S                      Aah___

S                      Aah___

A + Mannen    “Now the old king is dead, long live the king.”

S + A                One minute I held the key__

Mannen          Aah___

S                      next the walls were closed on

A                     next the walls were closed on me and I discovered that my castels stand

Mannen          Aah ________________________and I discovered that my castels stand

S                      Aah___

A + mannen    upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand.

 

Allen               Refrein 1 I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman Cavalry choirs are singin’

Be my mirror my sword and shield,

my missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can’t explain,

once you’d gone there was never,

never an honest word

but that was when I ruled the world__.

 

Interlude 2 (7 maten rust)

 

S + A                3 It was a wicked and wild wind__,

Mannen          blew down the doors to let me in__,

S + A                Shatered windows and the sound of drums__,

Mannen          people couldn’t believe what I’d become.

Allen               Revolutionaries wait__

for my head on a silver plate,

Just a puppet on a lonely string__,

Oh would ever wanna be king__?

 

Refrein 2 I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman Cavalry choirs are singin’

Be my mirror my sword and shield,

my missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can’t explain,

I know Saint Peter won’t call my name.

Never an honest word,

but that was when I ruled the world__.

 

Interlude 3 (7 maten rust)

 

A                     Interlude 4 Oh____ (4 X)

S + mannen     Aah____ (2 X)

 

Refrein 3 I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman Cavalry choirs are singin’

Be my mirror my sword and shield,

my missionaries in a forreign field

For some reason I can’t explain,

I know Saint Peter won’t call my name.

Never an honest word,

but that was when I ruled the world__.

 

Allen               Coda Mmm___ (3 X)
