Viva La Vida Lesson Plan Lyrics Sheet

  1. 1. Viva la Vida by Coldplay*mark the rhyme scheme *remember some are forced-rhymes Name:____________________________Date:_____________________________<br /> <br />I used to rule the world Seas would rise when I gave the wordNow in the morning I sleep aloneSweep the streets I used to own<br />I used to roll the diceFeel the fear in my enemies eyesListen as the crowd would sing" Now the old king is dead! Long live the King!" <br />One minute I held the keyNext the walls were closed on meAnd I discovered that my castles standUpon pillars of salt and pillars of sand<br />I hear Jerusalem bells are ringingRoman Calvary choirs are singingBe my mirror my sword and shieldMy missionaries in a foreign fieldFor some reason I can’t explainOnce you know there was never, never an honest wordThat was when I ruled the world<br />It was the wicked and wild windBlew down the doors to let me inShattered windows and the sound of drums <br />People could not believe what I'd becomeRevolutionaries waitFor my head on a silver plateJust a puppet on a lonely stringOh who would ever want to be King?<br />I hear Jerusalem bells are ringingRoman Calvary choirs are singingBe my mirror my sword and shieldMy missionaries in a foreign fieldFor some reason I can’t explainI know Saint Peter won't call my nameNever an honest wordAnd that was when I ruled the world (Repeat)<br /> <br />
