Rare Earth - King Of The Mountain Lyrics




(Uh) [clears throat]
Now here's a story, it's sad but true
Best listen up now
Don't let this story happen to you

He made his way through the back streets
Played everybody's game
He was just trying to make it
'Cause money was his game
Tried his luck at card games
Always shootin' dice
Win or lose you always knew
He'd come back once or twice

He was the king of the mountain
My main man
(King of the mountain)
But the man had to come down
(King of the mountain)
Took a tumble for the worse
Whoa... yeah, look out
(He was the king of the mountain...)
Used to be my main man
Took a tumble y'all

(Uh) [clears throat]
Do check out my little rhyme
I ain't gonna say it but one more time

Well, well
He always had his women
Lots of pretty things
He was a central attraction
We called him Mr Clean
Well he drank the finest liquor
He blew a lotta cash
It wasn't long before we knew
That Mr. Clean would crash

He was a king of the mountain, yeah
My main man
(King of the mountain)
But he came way down
(King of the mountain)
Took a tumble for the worse y'all
He was the king, yeah
(He was the king of the mountain)
He used to be my main man
(He was the king of the mountain...)
Took a tumble

Whoa... yeah

(King of the mountain)
Well if you want to see him, yeah
(King of the mountain)
You just might try the track
(King of the mountain)
No he won't be in the winners' circle
He'll be standing way back (oh)

Well the king of the mountain
(He was the king of the mountain)
He used to be my main, my main man
Took a tumble (oh)
Now he ain't the king of aught

    Wish I could hear the rest of the album!

  4. AlwaysPrisms

    wow this is good

  5. Opinions Animation Studios

    This was Rare Earth's last major label LP offering. Produced & Written exclusively by Dino Fekaris - save for 1 song written by Pete - incidents happened where RCA didn't want to know anymore & released the LP in Canada to fulfill contractual obligation.

    Thought I knew it all. What a treat to find new long lost treasures especially from one of my all time favourite Rock & Soul bands. Yeah baby yeah!
