You're a peon in the presence of his imminence your impotence Em G And I forgive this incident your impudence Am Your judgement blurred B7 Correct it, kiss the ring and have the last word STACK Em G I might be down but I still swing a bigger better when there's pressure Am B7 [fadfjadlf?] kind of precious treasure Em G Last two rolls were pocket change, I'm hungry for some real cake Am What do you say your honor B7 One more, for some real stakes?
