IF I WERE KING OF THE FOREST From the film "The Wizard Of Oz" (1939) (Lyrics: E.Y. Harburg / Music: Harold Arlen) Bert Lahr (Film Soundtrack) - 1939 If I were King of the forest Not Queen, not Duke, not Prince My regal robes of the forest Would be satin, not cotton, not chintz I'd command each thing Be it fish or fowl With a wussh and a wussh And a royal growl....wunf! As I'd click my heel All the trees would kneel And the mountains bow And the bulls kowtow And the sparrow would take wing If I, if I were King! Each rabbit would show respect to me The chipmunks genuflect to me Though my tail would lash I would show compash For every underling If I, if I were King! Just King! Monarch of all I survey Mo-o-o-n-a-a-a-a-arch of all I survey! (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2010)
