One ego fantasy type song that I really like is Duke Of Earl - this site's http://www.wilmots.me.uk/grimsby-poets-corner.php has part of its lyric and a bit to listen to. (Its a bit like a more sensitive version of Seventh Son on the Chain Gang post here) ;

(I thought I remembered the main start line being 'As I wander through this world', maybe some direct or indirect link with the William Wordsworth poem 'I wandered lonely as a cloud' ?)

Duke of Earl - by Gene Chandler 1962
(E. Dixon, E. Edwards Sr., B. Williams)

Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl
Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl
Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl
Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl

As I - I walk through this world
Nothing can stop The Duke of Earl
And-a you, you are my girl (Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
And no one can hurt you, oh no. (Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
(Duke, Duke, Duke)

Yes-a I, Oh I'm gonna love you
Oh, oh. Come on let me hold you darling
'Cause I'm the Duke of Earl
So, yea, yea, yea, yeah.

(Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
And when I hold you (Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
You'll be my Dutchess, Dutchess of Earl (Duke, Duke, Duke)
We'll walk through my Duke-dom
And a paradise we will share.

(Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
Yes-a I, Oh I'm gonna love you (Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
Oh, oh, nothing can stop me, now (Duke, Duke, Duke)
'Cause I'm The Duke of Earl
So, yea, yea, yea, yeah.

(Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
Yeah I, Oh I'm gonna love you (Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
Oh, oh, nothing can stop me, now (Duke, Duke, Duke)
'Cause I'm the Duke of Earl
So, yea, yea, yea, yeah.

(Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
(Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)
(Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl)

Yes this is a good song lyric. I have been checking on the most popular song downloads this week and
some of them sing OK but have awful lyrics, like ;

I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas.

I gotta feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night

A feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night

A feeling, woohoo, that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night

A feeling, woohoo, that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night

Tonight's the night, let's live it up
I got my money, let's spend it up
Go out and smash it like oh my God
Jump off that sofa, let's get, get off

I know that we'll have a ball
If we get down and go out and just lose it all
I feel stressed out, I wanna let it go
Let's go way out spaced out and losing all control

Fill up my cup, mozoltov
Look at her dancing, just take it off
Let's paint the town, we'll shut it down
Let's burn the roof, and then we'll do it again

Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it, let's do it
And do it and do it, let's live it up
And do it and do it and do it, do it, do it
Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it

'Cause I gotta feeling, woohoo, that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night

A feeling, woohoo, that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night

Tonight's the night (Hey!)
Let's live it up (Let's live it up)
I got my money (My pay)
Let's spend it up (Let's spend it up)

Go out and smash it (Smash it)
Like oh my God (Like oh my God)
Jump off that sofa (Come on!)
Let's get, get off

Fill up my cup (Drink)
Mozoltov (Lahyme)
Look at her dancing (Move it, move it)
Just take it off

Let's paint the town (Paint the town)
We'll shut it down (Let's shut it down)
Let's burn the roof
And then we'll do it again

Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it, let's do it
And do it and do it, let's live it up
And do it and do it and do it, do it, do it
Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it, do it, do it, do it

Here we come, here we go, we gotta rock (Rock rock rock rock rock)
Easy come, easy go, now we on top (Top top top top top)
Feel the shot, body rock, rock it, don't stop (Stop stop stop stop stop)
Round and round, up and down, around the clock (Rock rock rock rock rock)

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (Do it!)
Friday, Saturday, Saturday to Sunday (Do it!)
Get, get, get, get, get with us, you know what we say, say
Party every day, p-p-p-party every day

And I'm feelin', woohoo, that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night

I gotta feeling, woohoo, that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night. Woohoo
