STEELY DAN : KING OF THE WORLD [1973]

Ένα ακόμα έξοχο τραγούδι των Fagen – Becker, ένας ακόμα κρίκος στην πυρηνική μας αντίδραση. Από το άλμπουμ των Steely Dan Countdown To Ecstasy, κυκλοφορία του 1973 / Another splendid song by Fagen – Becker, another link in our nuclear chain reaction. From Steely Dan’s album Countdown To Ecstasy, released in 1973.

Hello one and all
Was it you I used to know
Can’t you hear me call
On this old ham radio
All I got to say
I’m alive and feeling fine
If you come my way
You can share my poison wine
No marigolds in the promised land
There’s a hole in the ground
Where they used to grow
Any man left on the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world
As far as I know
I don’t want your bread
I don’t need your helping hand
I can’t be no savage
I can’t be no highwayman
Show me where you are
You and I will spend this day
Driving in my car
Through the ruins of Santa Fe
No marigolds in the promised land
There’s a hole in the ground
Where they used to grow
Any man left on the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world
As far as I know
I’m reading last year’s papers
Although I don’t know why
Assassins cons and rapers
Might as well die
If you come around
No more pain and no regrets
Watch the sun go brown
Smoking cobalt cigarettes
There’s no need to hide
Taking things the easy way
If I stay inside
I might live til Saturday
No marigolds in the promised land
There’s a hole in the ground
Where they used to grow
Any man left on the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world
As far as I know
