Music and Lyrics by Jonathan Vassar

lyrics

In the yard i sit and linger on
what I used to call a lawn.
Now’s what i’d call a laugh of leaves
With my Betty Blue by my feet.

I am king
Of everything
Everything In my kingdom.

The afternoon adores the way
Betty and i just while away.
She’ll scratch the dirt and i’ll do the same.
We’ll sit and watch the sky for planes.

I am king
Of everything
Everything In my kingdom.

She looks at me and watches close
As I stretch my legs as far as they go.
I’ll make a face when i decide
that it’s time to go inside.
