Lyrics to song Not Even The King by Alicia Keys

Verse 1
Money
Some people so poor; all that they've got is money
Oh, and diamonds
Some people waste their life counting their thousands

Chorus
I don't care what they're offering
How much gold they bring
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king

Verse 2
Oh, castles
Some people so lonely; what good is a castle?
Surrounded by people
But ain't got a friend that's not on the payroll

Chorus
Oh, and I don't care what they bring
They can have everything
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king

Verse 3
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Came charging to get what we got
They offered the crown and the offered the throne
I already got all that I want
All the king's horses and all the king's men
They came marching through
They offered the world just to have what we got
But I found the world in you
I found the world in you

Chorus 2
So darling, listen:
Your arms around me worth more than a kingdom
Yeah, believe that
The trust that we feel the kings never felt that
Yeah, this is the song that we sing
We don't need anything
They can't afford this
This is priceless
Can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
Can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
