The Lyrics

Sure, everybody wants to rule the world, but is it really worth it?
Dedicate you-our li-ife
To planning a-attacks
On this world of shee-eep
But I tell you
There's a lot of hidden dangers
I've experience with failure
It's not really fun to rule the world

Got to deal wi-ith piles
Of damn pape-erwork
Rebels all the ti-i-ime
Kick your face in
The pain they inflict? It never
Ends, neither does it get better
It's not that much fun to rule the world

Economic crisis: what to do?
Can't just send the Stormtrooper stand-ins down
What if a minister betrays you?
Makes sense to execute him
Might spark a revolution
Harder than it looks to rule the world

You may have an evil vision
There's still lots of tough decisions
You have to make when you rule the world
Say that you'll hack and whack and smash and bash the peasants
But the backlash ain't pleasant
Harder than you'd think to rule the world

I'm not saying give up, never
Just don't assume you're so clever
That you'll easily conquer the world

This is what the Evil Overlord list was made for, people.
