There was once this king,
Who ruled the whole world;
Every stone pebble was his,
And so were all the grains of sand.
Not satisfied with what he got,
He decided to pray to the lord;
To make him ruler of other worlds,
To make him master of the lands beyond.
He forgot his kingdom,
And prayed to the lord divine;
Certain that the lord cannot keep him waiting,
He the one who rules the whole world.
