📜 Lyrics

[Verse 1:

] You say The price of my love’s not a price that you’re willing to pay You cry In your tea which you hurl in the sea when you see me go by Why so sad? Remember we made an arrangement when you went away Now you’re making me mad Remember, despite our estrangement, I’m your man You’ll be back, soon you’ll see You’ll remember you belong to me You’ll be back, time will tell You’ll remember that I served you well Oceans rise, empires fall We have seen each other through it all And when push comes to shove I will send a fully armed battalion to remind you of my love! [Chorus:
King George III
King George III
] Da da da dat da dat da da da da ya da Da da dat dat da ya da! Da da da dat da dat da da da da ya da Da da dat dat da… [Verse 2:
King George III
King George III
] You say our love is draining and you can’t go on You’ll be the one complaining when I am gone... And no, don’t change the subject Cuz you’re my favorite subject My sweet, submissive subject My loyal, royal subject Forever and ever and ever and ever and ever… [Verse 3:
King George III
King George III
] You’ll be back like before I will fight the fight and win the war For your love, for your praise And I’ll love you till my dying days When you’re gone, I’ll go mad So don’t throw away this thing we had Cuz when push comes to shove I will kill your friends and family to remind you of my love [Chorus:
King George III
King George III
] Da da da dat da dat da da da da ya da Da da dat dat da ya da! Da da da dat da dat da da da da ya da Da da dat— Everybody! [Chorus: FULL ENSEMBLE] Da da da dat da dat da da da da ya da Da da dat dat da ya da! Da da da dat da dat da da da da ya da da da da Dat dat da ya da!
