The Lyrics

Bill sings...
Overseeing Microsoft
I see things are really paying off
Watching the chips pour in
I’m enjoying all the dividends


Yeah, I’m living on the top of the world
Watching my life’s work unfurl
Oh, I am giving to the cause of this world
And mankind


I’ve come to love Medina
Skirted by Lake Washington
I have so much to live for
And I feel my life’s work has just begun


So while I maybe look like the king of the hill
My darling wife keeps it real
Oh, my Melinda is the queen of her field
She’s so kind


We are goin’ to make a change
Noblesse oblige runs through our veins
We can do what our conscience tells us to do
We can’t let apathy remain


Workin' here bustin' our duffs
We’ll keep going though the going gets tough
Billions of smiles in scope
Just to give the world some hope


Now I’m not goin’ to stand on top of the world
Pretending like I’m an earl
No, I am handing off the keys to this world
To mankind


{whistling}
