King of Spain

CHORUS
   F#           B       F#
Once I was the King of Spain 
  F#       B     F#
now I eat humble pie
   F#                 B           F#
Oh... my unspeakable wife, Queen Lisa 
  F#       B      F#
now I eat humble pie
     F#                    B       F#
I'm telling you I was the King of Spain
  F#       B      F#
now I eat humble pie
     F#                C#     F#
And now I work at the Pizza Pizza
1 2 3 4!

F#    B    F#  B  F#
F#    B    F#  C# F#


VERSE
   F#                    B  
Royalty, lord it looked good on me
          B                  F#         C#            F# 
Buried in silk in the royal boudoir or going nuclear free
             F#                             B
Or playing Crokinole with the Princess of Monaco
             B                 F#     C#                 F#
Telling my jokes to the OPEC leaders, getting it all on video

CHORUS
   F#          B        F#
Once I was the King of Spain 
  F#       C#     F#
now I eat humble pie
   F#               B            F#
A palatial palace, that was my home
  F#      C#      F#
now I eat humble pie
     F#                    B       F#
I'm telling you I was the King of Spain
  F#       C#    F#
now I eat humble pie
     F#               C#       F#
And now I vacuum the turf at SkyDome
  F#             B       F#   
Once he was the King of Spain

VERSE 
   F#                         B  
I can't wait, I'm lowering interest rates; my people say:
        B                   F#                C#               F# 
"King, how are you such a genius? There's a roof overhead and food on our plates!"
      F#                           B
It's laissez-faire, I don't even give a care
             B                  F#               C#               F#
Let's make Friday part of the weekend and give every new baby a chocolate eclair

CHORUS
   F#          B        F#
Once I was the King of Spain 
  F#      C#     F#
now I eat humble pie
    F#                        B             F#
Hey Clinton! Hey Yeltsin! Got problems? You phone me!
  F#       C#    F#
now I eat humble pie
    F#                     B       F#
I'm telling you I was the King of Spain
  F#       C#     F#
now I eat humble pie
         F#                  C#        F#
Now the Leafs call me up to drive the Zamboni
  F#             B       F#   
Once he was the King of Spain

Solo
Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you the international orchestra!
B      F#      C#       D#m B F#

F#
Now some of you might be wondering how I came to be living in Canada
after being royalty in Spain. Should I tell them, guys?
Tell us, King!

VERSE
         F#                      B  
You see late one night when the palace was asleep
   B              F#          C#               F# 
Out of my royal chambers and into the garden I creep
            F#                                B
And I wait till the appointed time, when the moon is lighting the pitch
                   B                         F#           C#                    F#
At which point my peasant friend, who looks just like me arrives and we make a switch!

F#                                      B
Prince and pauper, junior and whopper, world made up of silver and copper
   B                   F#                  C#                                F#   
Under my own volition, I took a change of position
F#                             B
So next time you drool in the pizza line
           B                   F#
Remember, slower pizza's more luscious: the King of Spain never rushes!

CHORUS/ENDING
   F#          B        F#
Once I was the King of Spain 
  F#       C#    F#
now I eat humble pie
       F#                    B       F#
I was looking for offhanded ways to improve us 
  F#      C#     F#
now I eat humble pie
    F#                     B       F#
I'm telling you I was the King of Spain
  F#       C#     F#
now I eat humble pie
     F#                   C#   F#
And now I'm jamming with Moxy Fruvous!
  F#             B       F#   
Once he was the King of Spain

I believe a C#7 works better than the C# does. and it should be played with capo on 2nd fret as E, A and B7. It's the same chord changes and everything but it's much easier on the fingers instead of holding barre chords the entire time.
