The cathedral's glittering on coronation day
Crowned heads and cardinals under military sway
I approach the altar slowly in a humble shroud
to receive the acclamation of the loyal crowd

Give me power over people in a palace
with a permanent guard
and the flags unfurled
Give devotion, dedication, celebration
not some cheap charade
and I'll rule the world
All of these delusions of grandeur
because they said 'We don't understand you'
and I want revenge

In audience I receive the media's pleas
They kiss my ring in interviews on bended knees
In victory I'm magnanimous and charming when
I speak exclusively at length to CNN

About power over people in a palace
with a permanent guard
and the flags unfurled
With devotion, dedication, celebration
not some cheap charade
I will rule the world
All of these delusions of grandeur
because they said 'We don't understand you'
and I want revenge

Ring the bells, tell everyone
Revolution can be fun
