[How ya doing now?]

Since she's my queen,
That makes me king
I must be King

And she and I are like brother and sister,
I get to be her companion too
And share her secrets,
They put us side by side to live, to live

These days of joy, I stand and weep
Cause I'm so grateful to watch her smile when she's asleep
Since we're like birdies, this must be spring
And since she's my queen, since she's my queen
That makes me, that makes me king

And she and I are like brother and sister,
I get to be her companion
And share her secrets,
They put us side by side to live

These days of joy, I stand and weep
Cause I'm so grateful to watch her smile when she's asleep
Since we're like birdies, this must be spring
And since she's my queen, since she's my queen
I must be king, I must be king
