I am king over the land and the sea,
My power reaches out o'er the realm;
The good ship of state never fears of her fate
When my hand rests secure at the helm.
My subjects are slaves to my own gracious will,-
I am king of the bond and the free;
Come and go at my call, for I am ruler of all,
Hail the King o'er the land And the sea
Hail the king o'er the land and the sea,
Hail the king o'er the land and the sea;
Hail the ruler of all, hail the king,
Hail the ruler of all, hail the king.
I am king o'er t e land and the sea,
My power there is none to withstand;
I have only to speak, or to sign a decree.
And my will is the law of the land.
I have treasures at hand, and I've gold to com and,
What more could my heart wish to be?
My banners unfurled, and I'm known o'er the world
As the monarch o'er land and o'er sea.-Chorus.
