lyrics

It’s fifty percent mental, ninety percent fate
It ain't over till it’s over, and I say it ain’t!
I'm a little bit brash and known to be late
The hell with your lies, I’m a sinner of my day…

Oh Yogi, I wanna be king
I wanna feel like a god, and praised like a saint

The prince of a town will never get far
When he rests on his laurels, never gains a scar
He'll jump from the bridge, feet never hit the floor
Wonders why his nickel ain't worth a dime anymore
If he don’t make it, you know he’ll be fine
He'll take his toys and move on down the line
Now I'm a man who'll take what I get
It’s like déjà vu, all over again…

Oh Yogi, I wanna be king
I wanna feel like a god, and praised like a saint
I wanna look down from the mountains of the empire state
I wanna wave to the crowds through my ticker tape

She told her mama one day she'd be proud
Her name in lights, on stage for the crowd
She dances like an angel, queen of Swan Lake
Nimble as a thimble, from any small state
Now that she’s made it you know she'll be fine
She said “I gave it my all, put it all on the line.”
Now night after night she dances for them
It’s like déjà vu all over again…

Oh Yogi, I wanna be king
I wanna feel like a god, praised like a saint
I wanna look down from the mountains of the Empire State
I wanna wave to the crowds through my ticker tape.

Oh Yogi, I wanna be king
Maybe I'll marry that Marylyn, like Joey D.
I wanna wake up in that city that doesn't sleep
Oh, Yogi, I wanna be king.
