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
A + mannen feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes,
A + mannen Listened as the crowd would sing:
A + Mannen “Now the old king is dead, long live the king.”
S + A One minute I held the key__
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
A + mannen upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand.
Allen Refrein 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 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 who would ever wanna be king ?___
Interlude 3 (7 maten rust)
A Interlude 4 Oh____ (4 X)
S + mannen Aah____ (2 X)
Allen Coda Mmm___ (3 X)
