Not Even The King
by Alicia Keys



Money...
some people so poor; all that they've got is money...
Oh, and diamonds...
some people waste their life counting their thousands...

I don't care what they're offering...
how much gold they got?
They can't afford what we've got,
not even the king...
They can't afford what we've got,
not even the king...

Oh, castles...
some people so lonely; what good is a castle
surrounded by people?
But ain't got a friend that's not on the payroll...

Oh, and I don't care what they bring;
they can have everything...
They can't afford what we've got,
not even the king...
They can't afford what we've got,
not even the king...

All the king's horses and all the king's men
came charging to get what we got...
They offered the crown and the offered the throne;
I already got what I want...

All the king's horses and all the king's men;
they came marching through...
They offered the world just to have what we got,
but I found the world in you...
I found the world in you...

So darling, listen:
your arms around me worth more than a kingdom...
Yeah, believe that
the trust that we feel the kings never felt that...

Yeah, this is the song that we sing...
We don't need anything...
They can't afford this;
this is priceless...

Can't afford what we've got,
not even the king...
Can't afford what we've got,
not even the king...
