Up in the heavens -- what can I see
Warlord of Ganymede
Coming from far-distant nebulae
Warlord of Ganymede
Coming to Earth to overthrow
Kings of the world in one great blow
How many medals shall they bestow
On the Warlord of Ganymede
Hail him! Crown him king of the world today
Hail him! Help him put down the new-found way
Hail him! Praise him for all the good he's done
Hail him! Call him Warlord, the chosen one

There, on the world's throne, who can I hear
Warlord of Ganymede
Who is that person the humans cheer
Warlord of Ganymede
Why are they singing his name in song
Why have they let him reign so long
Do they not know that he is so wrong
This Warlord of Ganymede
Hail him! Crown him king of the world today
Hail him! Help him put down the new-found way
Hail him! Praise him for all the good he's done
Hail him! Call him Warlord, the chosen one

Listen, you people, I know he's bad
Warlord of Ganymede
Listen, you people, you think me mad
Warlord of Ganymede
What do you now propose to do
Now that he's made such fools of you
Yes, it's too late, now he's come for you
Warlord of Ganymede
Hail him! Crown him king of the world today
Hail him! Help him put down the new-found way
Hail him! Praise him for all the good he's done
Hail him! Call him Warlord, the chosen one
