King For Tonight - Billy Fury

King For Tonight

Billy Fury

(Doc Pomus - Mort Shuman, DECCA F 11 258, 1962)

I don't need a kingdom, I don't need a throne
Or a crown with diamonds shining bright
Mm-mmm-mm, if you said you love me
And you were mine alone
Then I'd be a king for tonight
Every single time you hold my hand
And you tell me that you understand
I am the ruler of a wonderland
Just made for two
Oh, my little darling now-a
What's the good of richess, fortune and renown
If there's sleepless nights and endless days
Mm-mmm-mm, if you'd be my queen dear
And love would be our crown
And I'd be a king for always

What's the good of richess, fortune and renown
If there's sleepless nights and endless days
Mm-mmm-mm, if you'd be my queen dear
And love would be our crown
And I'd be a king for always
I would be a king for always

Also recorded by Barry Darvell on ATLANTIC 45-2138, 1962
