VERSE (0:26) -

It's good to be [Em]king, if just for a[Am]while.
To be there in v[D]elvet. Yeah, to give 'em a s[Em]mile.
It's good to get [Em]high, and never come d[Am]own.
It's good to be [D]King, of your own little [Em]town.

CHORUS (0:53) -
Y[A]eah, the world would swing, if [D]I were k[G]ing.
[C]  [G]  [D]  Can I help it if I [C]  [G]  [Em]   still dr[A]eam time to time. [Asus]      [A]

VERSE (1:20) -

It's good to be [Em]king, and have your own[Am] way.
Get a feeling of p[D]eace at the end of the [G]day.
And when your bulldog b[Em]arks and your canary s[Am]ings ,
You're out there with w[D]inners, it's good to be [Em]king.

VERSE (2:40) -

It's good to be k[Em]ing and have your own w[Am]orld.
It helps to make f[D]riends, it's good to meet g[Em]irls.
A sweet little q[Em]ueen, who can't run [Am]away.
It's good to be k[D]ing, whatever it p[Em]ays.
