IT'S GOOD TO BE THE KING RAP From the film "The History Of The World Part 1" (1981) (Mel Brooks / Pete Wingfield) Mel Brooks (Film Soundtrack) - 1981 (Ah Ooh Ah Ooh Ah Ooh Ah Ooh) Now get down people and listen to me Gonna tell you how I made history You can call me Louis, I'm the king of France Check out my story while you do your dance Now in seventeen hundred and eighty-nine The peasants were starving, but I was fine We were hanging out, down in old Versailles That's the week end pad of my Queen and I In the alleys of Paris they was eating rats But it was fillet and ????? for the aristocrats There were Dukes and Counts and Barons and Earls I gave them the titles but I kept the girls Blondes, red heads, wild brunettes Ladies-in-waitin', I didn't wait to get There was truffles for breakfast, toast for brunch The line of the Follies Bergères for lunch (Ooh yes, it's good to be the King) (Ooh La La) (Gee, but it's good to be the King) Say it girls (You can be sure about one thing) (Ooh La La) (Mais oui, it's good to be the king) It's good to be the king (Ah Ooh Ah Ooh) Well if Paris was rioting, they were doing it good When we heard there was some trouble in the neighborhood I wasn't too worried, no big deal You step out the line, Jack, you're in the Bastille The party kept swinging all day and all night The champagne was flowing, we was feeling all right They were screaming for bread, things started to shake But Marie-Antoinette said (Well let 'em eat cake!) Now the rabble wouldn't have it, they was angry with me They built a big old razor called the guillotine Then the people all shouted, "We'll have our day" "Down with dirty water, give us Perrier!" I said the more you want, things might get screwy But they'll never lay a finger on good King Louis Just keep your cool, don't fret, don't freak I say Hey! (Say what?) C'est magnifique! (Ooh yes, it's good to be the king) (Ooh La La) (Gee, but it's good to be the king) Your fantasy is my reality (You can be sure about one thing) (Ooh La La) (Mais oui, it's good to be the king) It's good to be the king (Paria Pappu Paria Pappu Paria Pappu Paria Pappu Paria Pappu Paria) (Paria Pappu Paria Pappu Paria Pappu Paria Pappu Paria Pappu Paria) (Ooh Night and day comme vous voulez (Ooh Well they broke down the gate in one massive assault And the party came to a grinding halt They took the midgets and the freakies with the girls and all And the boys said, "Louis, it's time to go" They put my neck on the block, they took off my wig And It occurred to me this was the end of the gig They asked me did I have any last words to say Well, I raised my head and I hollered "Hey!" (Ooh yes, it's good to be the king) (Ooh La La) (Gee, but it's good to be the king) Well c'est la vie, make that la mort (You can be sure about one thing) (Ooh La La) (Ooh yes it's good to be the king) Well it was good while it lasted (We can be sure about one thing) (Ooh La La) (Mais oui, it's good to be the king) It's good to be the king!
