Weezer - King Of The World Lyrics




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

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

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

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

We are the small fish
We swim together
No Prozac or Valium
We’ll face tsunamis together

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

    Awesome. They shot the video in my neighborhood. Wish I knew when they did. I would've totally tried to catch them then.

  3. Karasamune

    You guys knocked it out of the park with the White Album. Best one since Pinkerton. Legit think Endless Bummer is a better closer than Butterfly.

  28. Hiround Blazer

    The story of my life resumed on a single video.

  29. shannon crowe

  30. Joe Jordan #23!

    I'm the king

  31. Raul Fernandez

    Who is-rex mundi?

  32. Mr. Yeeteson Peterson

    yall really gotta take a look at what rivers says about the lyrics he writes lol some of these comments are so random

  35. Stephi Smith

    ich liebe euch!!!

  36. afab munz

    Is this some kind of homage to the 'enjoy the silence' video?

  37. Flip Mode

    I would rather recommend listening to these guys if you play drums

  38. Kitty Bubbles

    I love what theyre trying to do, but it just doesnt sound the same as rivers' amateur vocals back in the day... they give a certain edgy teeny vibe, a careless touch

  39. A Y R T O N

    this video has a sad undertone

  40. Mobile bnk48.official

    Titanic!? I'm the king of the world!!

  41. LauraJB2011

    I love this song.

  42. mr-self-destruct

    0:00 i just realized what the colors are. im an idiot

  43. Joseph Trejo

    I heard Seth Rogen has a Twin, i never found out how many followers he had after that point, then i posted that announcement. And he started following me, i was like, " Is this because of WHAT i did to JAMES Franco, but he's my BUBBY ". Goshhhh...

  44. Joseph Trejo

    Seth Rogen is one of my best friends' on travel guide's choice for parcels...meaning nobody thought it was weird to see that from far away, so words made dreams, and deaming secondly...we all proved how seconds unify time.
    What do they really know about us?

  45. Grifols Donor

    Weezer is Zo-rch York-in Prick-sy mfffxxxx... I meant to say he's my best friend :)

  46. Timothy Bernaditskas

    Coney Islanddddd

  47. ari anto

    Armada - Pergi pagi pulang pagi

  48. Roboticfalcon21

    I wish they played this at the concert but they were playing their classic songs. I'm not complaining but it still would've been nice to see them play this along with the rest.

  49. mr-self-destruct

    i like how almost this whole video was in one shot

  50. luis Post

    I can only remember the Africa reboot,

  51. eks oh

    what instrument is in the beginning? i know its like 80's or earlier some voice thing with a pen?

  52. Joseph Trejo

    I've already told it to his," Hey, Seth Rogen this reminds me of you" and that's when i put seth Rogen in a box, for asking me the difference between white magic and black magic??? I was like what do you want, A homosexual who is really into dark magic, tf he could just be vegan with really dark concepts of the mind...tf.

  53. Alex Forrest

    Because why not

  54. Joseph Trejo

    I PUNCHED ," THE STIFLER" IN THE AXX, TO THIS SONG. AND FORCED HIM TO BE MY FRIEND :)))))))))) YOURS TRULY, JOSEPH LARSEN.

  55. Frenchfry Films

    So let’s got a recap... random drunk guy dressed as a king stealing helpless civilians chips flipping them off running in a straight line jumping off benches then he starts stealing from atms runs from the cops and fails to vault a bar and he gets arrest.


    WHAT THE HELL THATS PRETTY MUCH MY DAILY ROUTINE

  56. Frenchfry Films

    Verse 1]
    You walk by the magazines

    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

    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
