Oh, and diamonds

How much gold they bring
Not even the king
Not even the king
Oh, castles
Surrounded by people?

They can have everything
Not even the king
Not even the king
All the king's horses and all the king's men
They offered the crown and the offered the throne

They came marching through
But I found the world in you

Your arms around me worth more than a kingdom
The trust that we feel the kings never felt that
Yeah, this is the song that we sing
They can't afford this

Not even the king
Not even the king
