This isn't exact by any means, but hopefully it will be helpful to anyone who is a 
fan of Penn Masala!

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

C-D-G-Em (x4)

          C        D
I used to roll the dice
         G                  Em
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
              C           D
Listen as the crowd would sing
         G                 Em
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"


             C        D
One minute I held the key
         G          Em
Next the walls were closed on me
                         C       D
And I discovered that my castles stand
     G                   Em
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand


  C              D
I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
G             Em
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
C                D
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
   G                 Em
My missionaries in a foreign field
C                 D
For some reason I can't explain
G                     Em
Once you go there was never
         C      D
Never an honest word
             G                EM
And that was when I ruled the world


C                 D
Kehne Ko Jashan-E-Bahara Hai
G               Em
Ishq Yeh Dekhke Hairaan Hai(X2)

 C                  D             G         Em
[Phool Se Khusboo Khafa Khafa Hai Gulsan Mein
C              D            G          Em
Chupa Hai Koi Ranj Fiza Ki Chilman Mein]

     D              Em
Sare Sehmein Nazare Hain
          D             Em
Soye Soye Vaqt Ke Dhare Hain
   C         D   Em               D
Aur Dil Mein Koi Khoyi Si Baatein Hain

C                 D
Kehne Ko Jashan-E-Bahara Hai
G               Em
Ishq Yeh Dekhke Hairaan Hai (X2)

 C                D               G          Em
[Phool Se Khusboo Khafa Khafa Hai Gulsan Mein
C             D            G           Em
Chupa Hai Koi Ranj Fiza Ki Chilman Mein]



Chorus
C                D
I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
G             Em
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
C                D
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
G                    Em
My missionaries in a foreign field
C                 D
For some reason I can't explain
G                        Em
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
          C      D
[Never an honest word
             G                Em
But that was when I ruled the world](play tab on 2nd time only)


Obviously listen to the way they perform the song to get the likeness of it. At 
the end it comes in and out a couple times with the final chorus, just repeat the 
same chords in those spaces. ENJOY! :)
