Lyrics
There's something nasty and it's sticking on my shoe
It's trying to take over most everything I do
How did it happen that it stuck inside my throat
I didn't count on this when I was asked to vote

I watch them slide around the corridors of power
Too busy stealing while they take away what's ours
You want respect, don't make me laugh when you deceive us
My favourite Dutchy, why'd you ever have to leave us

Cooler than you
No one's cooler than you
All the things that you'd do
If you were king of the world
We would all play guitar
We would all be a star
With our beautiful king of the world
Beautiful king of the world

A clap of thunder now they've taken you away
And now the world is crying every single day
How could you leave us all to face the stormy weather
I guess you knew that we'd be strong enough together

Why do they leave the bad and take away the good
You were no angel but we all knew where we stood
We're on the guest list and there's passes on the door
We're gonna rock'n'roll before we hit the floor

Cooler than you
No one's cooler than you
All the things that you'd do
If you were king of the world
We would all play guitar
We would all be a star
With our beautiful king of the world
Beautiful king of the world

Cooler than you

Beautiful king of the world
Beautiful king of the world
