Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
You walk by the magazines
Sitting on the rack at the CVS
One more sad movie star divorce
Three hundred died in an airplane wreck
And you think of all the people suffering...

King of the World

Weezer


[Verse 1]
You walk by the magazines
Sitting on the rack at the CVS
One more sad movie star divorce
Three hundred died in an airplane wreck
And you think of all the people suffering
And you bury that pain
But you can tell me everything
And we'll ride on that wave

[Chorus]
If I was king of the world
You'd be my girl
You wouldn't have to shed one single tear
Unless you wanted to
‘Cause yeah I know what it's like
If I was king of the world
Yeah, girl
We could ride a Greyhound all the way to the Galapagos
And stay for the rest of our lives(ooohh ohhhh ohhhh ohhh)

[Verse 2]
Dad hit you on the hand
Just for holding your chopsticks wrong
Then your Mom locked you in a shed
And Uncle Sam dropped an atom bomb
But you're not alone
You can let it go
And just weep on my breast
And cover me with your tenderness
And that pain will pass

[Chorus]
If I was king of the world
You'd be my girl
You wouldn't have to shed one single tear
Unless you wanted to
‘Cause yeah I know what it's like
If I was king of the world
Yeah, girl
We could ride a Greyhound all the way to the Galapagos
And stay for the rest of our lives(ooohh ohhhh ohhhh ohhh)

[Bridge]
We are the small fish
We swim together(ohh)
No Prozac or Valium
We'll face tsunamis together

[Chorus]
If I was king of the world
You'd be my girl
You wouldn't have to shed one single tear
Unless you wanted to
‘Cause yeah I know what it's like
If I was king of the world
Yeah, girl
We could ride a greyhound all the way to the Galapagos
And stay for the rest of our lives(ooohh ohhhh ohhhh ohhh)

"King of the World" Track Info



Reading Kyoko's annotations helps me love the song more because I understand exactly why the lyrics are what they are. Initially I was disturbed and confused by the second verse, but this makes it clear. Still makes me sad, but I understand and I think I can better enjoy the song now. Maybe the annotations will also help others make sense of why this happy sounding song would mention some pretty awful stuff.

I felt strange reading this, like I was eavesdropping or intruding on a conversation between me and my wife. I love her words and the way she appreciates my lyrics about my support, especially after being married so long. To see that – her reaction to my song – makes me really happy and glad that we have each other, but it does feel a little voyeuristic or intrusive.

She is okay with this public honesty – that is inspiring to me, really. I mentioned that I have some anxiety issues and you all are some of the few people I've admitted that to (I suppose it might be obvious to people who pay close attention). I think her willingness to be a part of this song not only in a distanced way in the lyrics that are about her, but in a really direct way by contributing these notes, is really brave and could help other people like me know we are not alone either.

That said, it IS the internet and there will undoubtedly be articles and stuff talking about the lyrics and her comments - it makes me a little worried, I guess, at the possibility of people being rude. Of course those people don't matter, but what if someone says mean things about her parents or something? I'm sure she has ways to deal with that sort of thing or to avoid being aware of them, but it did occur to me. You know, I might say my dad was a jerk, but if someone else does it might bother me.
