This song is amazing and beautiful.  A heart touching depiction of the love Alicia Keys feels. It really minded me of the sound on her first album, Songs In A Minor.” I used to play that whole CD over and over. I loved it and I love this song! “They can’t afford what we got, not even the king.” This aired on the Stand Up To Cancer special which Celebrities supported research into the disease and aired performances by Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Alicia Keys and Tim McGraw. “Not Even The King” is off her upcoming album “Girl On Fire.” Read the lyrics and watch Alicia perform her new song “Girl On Fire” with Nicki Minaj at the VMAs by clicking below for more.

Not Even The King lyrics

Money,
Some people so poor all that they got is money
Oh, and diamonds
Some people wait till they count them in thousands
I don’t care what they offering,
How much gold they bring.

They can’t afford what we got,
Not even the king
They can’t afford what we got,
Not even the king

Oh Castles, some people so lonely what good is a castle?
Surrounded by people,
But they ain’t got a friend that’s not on the payroll
Oh, I don’t care what they bring,
They can have everything

They can’t afford what we got,
Not even the king
They can’t afford what we got,
Not even the king

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
They charging to get what we got
They offer the crown, and they offer the throne
But I already got all that I want

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
They came marching through
They offer the world just to have what we got
But I found the world in you
I found a world in you

So darling listen,
Your arms around me worth more than a kingdom
Yeah, believe that
But trust that we feel, the king’s never felt that
Yeah this is the song we sing
We don’t need anything

They can’t afford this
This is priceless
They can’t afford what we’ve got
Not even the king
They can’t afford what we got,
Not even the king.
