Daniel Johnston - King Kong lyrics

[Verse 1] They shot him down They shot him down They thought he was a monster But he was the king [Verse 2] They came to his island And they brought her with them They wanted to get his picture But they were surprised by his enormous size [Verse 3] And when he saw the woman He took her without question Because after all He was the king [Verse 4] And he loved the woman He loved the way she looked But she wouldn't stop Her screaming [Verse 5] But he loved the woman And he fought a Tyrannosaurus Rex It was a bloody battle But he fought it for his woman [Verse 6] And he climbed up a mountain And he looked around Some kind of forest With all those dinosaurs [Verse 7] And he stripped his woman He stripped her bare But there was a pterodactyl There! [Verse 8] And then a hero Came and took his woman And they fell off the mountain Into some water [Verse 9] And then later He came looking for his woman But they were waiting And they threw a bomb [Verse 10] And they tied him And they took him across the ocean And they chained him And put him in the show [Verse 11] But when he saw his woman He broke loose And everyone fled in terror And he was looking for her [Verse 12] And he overturned the train He was looking in the street And then he found her in her apartment And He climbed up the Empire State building [Verse 13] It was like a phallic symbol And he took his woman To the top of that towering temple And he climbed up and looked around [Verse 14] Some kind of city With all those skyscrapers And all the cars Just him and his screaming woman [Verse 15] They were finally alone He loved his woman You could see it in his eyes His great big eyes [Verse 16] He loved his woman From the moment he saw her He was all choked up inside [Verse 17] But when the airplanes came He was soon to die But he hung on long enough to set his woman down And make sure She was safe [Verse 18] And as the bullets pierced He looked at her so sincere Before he fell Because he loved his woman [Verse 19] They shot him down They shot him down They thought he was a monster But he was the king [Verse 20] Who k**ed the monkey Who k**ed the monkey ‘Twas beauty That k**ed the beast [Verse 21] And Willis O'Brien died A tragic d**h There wasn't much That he had left [Verse 22] And Ray Harryhousen said That when Willis died That's when the king Was really dead [Verse 23] They shot him down They shot him down They thought he was a monster But he was the king [Outro] But he was the king But he was the king But he was the king
