Once was a kingdom, far far away. Love was the rule of the day. Nothing more nothing less Than to give your friend your best. There's much more story that I could tell To make the hardest hearts swell. This is the story when love was king. When love was king, do you remember? When love was king, when love was king I remember when love was king He ruled the land, with his fist unfurled With open arms for the world Of hungry children, first he'd think To pull their lives from the brink When love was king He rescued souls lost in the sea In drifting vessel he would hear their plea When love was king He threw a line before they'd sink And gave the thirsty ones a drink He told the meek that they should try To use the sword to smite the lie That being king is for the weak When love was king I pray the lord these words we seek When love was king He showed respect for every man Regardless of their skin or clan Beside him stood his mighty queen and equal force wise and keen He lifted up the underneath And all his wealth he did bequeath To those who toiled with out a gain SO they would remember his reign So seek someplace to call your own Right next to this mighty shinning throne When love was king When love was king
