Intro: Ab Db Eb

Verse:
                     Ab
I never knew I was a lover
                                 Fm
Just cause I steal the things you hide
                               Db        Eb
Just cause I focus while we're dancing
                            Ab
Just cause I offered you a ride


                     Ab
Well I am not from Barcelona
                   Fm
I am not even from Madrid
                       Db         Eb
I am a native of the North Pole
                          Ab
And that can mess up any kid

Chorus:
        Eb                   Fm
Well if you can reinvent my name
        Eb                   Fm    Db
Well if you can redirect my day
        Eb              Ab
I wanna be the king of Spain


-same chord progression throughout the song-

And I will settle in Pamplona
And Ill provoke the bulls with words
And then Ill send a man to meet them all
The blood is fake, so I have heard

And all the senoritas sighing
Will be the fountain of my life
But while were floating in siesta
You search for bottles and for knives

Chorus:
        Eb                   Fm
Well if you can reinvent my name
        Eb                   Fm    Db
Well if you can redirect my day
        Eb              Ab
I wanna be the king of Spain

And I wear my boots of Spanish leather
Oh while Im tightening my crown
Ill disappear in some flamenco
Perhaps Ill reach the other side


Why are you stamping my illusion?
Just cause I stole some eagle's wings
Because you named me as your lover
Like all I could be anything

Chorus:
        Eb                   Fm
Well if you can reinvent my name
        Eb                   Fm    Db
Well if you can redirect my day
        Eb              Ab
I wanna be the king of Spain
