Kiss - King Of The Night Time World Lyrics

It's so sad, livin' at home
Far from the city and the midnight fun
It's so bad, goin' to school
So far from me and the dirty things that we do

I'm the king of the night time world
And you're my headlight queen
I'm the king of the night time world
Come live your secret dream

It's so fine, lovin' with ease
Far from the house and the family fights
It's so fine, bein' with you
Bein' with me makes everything alright

I'm the king of the night time world
And you're my headlight queen
I'm the king of the night time world
Come live your secret dream, alright

It's so sad, you're not content
Far from the music and the neon glow
Ain't you glad we got the time
Far from our folks, they'll never ever know

I'm the king of the night time world
And you're my headlight queen
I'm the king of the night time world
Come live your secret dream

I'm the king, I'm the king, I'm the king, I'm the king
I'm the king, I'm the king, I'm the king, I'm the king

I'm the king of the night time world
And you're my headlight queen
I'm the king of the night time world
Come live your secret dream
I'm the king of the night time world
And you're my headlight queen
I'm the king of the night time world
Come live your secret dream
I'm the king of the night time world
And you're my headlight queen
I'm the king of the night time world
Come live your secret dream
I'm the king of the night time world

  9. String Theorist

    The church that my parents made me go to as a kid was leading the southern baptist charge against Satanic rock around the time Destroyer came out. They brought this tone deaf young preacher in to tell all the kids in a special Sunday service about how evil Kiss was and how we'd all go to hell if we bought their albums. The moronic idiot made the mistake of showing a projector slide of the Destroyer album cover up on the screen in the sanctuary where all the kids could see it. It was huge and majestic. You could hear the entire audience of kids just go, "WHOA". Every single one of us went out and bought the album the next day. Best decision ever...

  10. THE BEACH BOYS – Summer Days

    This proves what a shitty rock vocalist Paul Stanley is....oh and KISS SUCKS !!

  11. John Beare

  12. j2deev1234

    King Ace and his unique style 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺

  59. blackjackcz

    Absolute classic! I had Kiss Destroyer on eight track tape back in the day. Anyone else have this album on eight track?

  60. Gregory W

    Rock and Roll doesn't get much better than this.

  61. Eddie Blackstone in Chicago

    Peter is a beast on this song! It's incredible. I'm not saying it's like some kind of percussionist technical masterpiece. It's a hard, heavy pounding in a hard heavy pounding song. His chops are right on in this song.

  62. X ANDREW X

    KISS and Trump makes me happy..

  63. Damon Baldi

    Who else grew up Thinking Kiss had Super Powers ??

    @Granville Friel Grew up? Super power?.....Of coarse.

    Stevie Del Ray

    My mom told me that they were demons...


    the pimp song; i'm the king of the night time world and you're my red light queen.

  65. Samsonite

    I love the rumors from the news report on Detroit Rock City, to the car crash and the beginning of this song. Oh the 70's!.

  66. Victor Carlos Marino

    Aguante Kiss la mejor banda de todos los tiempos no hay otra los mejores discos love Gon. Destructor decemascarados vestido para matar moster animalai criaturas de la noche

    My fav track from Destroyer as well.

  73. guitarslave

    My favorite Kiss song.

  74. John P M

    THE BEST EVER and this song kept me alive when it came out as  my world was falling apart due to many deaths in my family. Thank you KISS.

    Jeff K

    John P M Great cool that this helped you get through. So many great memories of KISS from back in the day.


    Kiss helped me not to give up as a bullied teenager, I don't even listen to people saying about them being Devil's worshippers....

    John Harriel

    I feel the same exact way that you do. Music has helped me get through the most difficult trials in my life, to where I consider the folk playing the songs that got me through family even never meeting them before. I've felt such a connection through their music and words. Sorry bout your family Bro. Keep your head up.

    John Harriel

    Also to the dude mentioning devil worship......I heard that plus they didnt know how to play. Kind of crazy they dont know how to play and selling millions upon millions of albums, them making a living on playing their instruments, and Ace being worshipped as a Guitar God! Not to mention Gene actually plays some Killer bass lines! Nobody ever was interested in having to have the same exact gear until Kiss blew up. Kiss knows they shit.

  75. Kenneth Morrison 1

    KISS Rocks! I am a proud member of the KISS Army! Love this Song!

  76. sheri wilson

    Lots of GREAT sex was had with this tune-

    Jazzy Smith
