Jimmy’s Notes:
Robert Greenidge and Ralph MacDonald finally got me to Trinidad and when I heard the Desperados playing my song up on Laventhill I felt like a King and it was Hot.

Lyrics:
I've traveled all around the world
And there are places that still stand out to me
None can really quite compare
To my island in the sea

My personal utopia
a place to run to
Where I can hide away
Where I can truly reign supreme
somewhere fresh and clean
Where a man can dream

Chorus
I'm king,(king) king of somewhere hot
I'm king (king) like every man should be
I'm king,(king) king of somewhere hot
Where the music in my soul (where the music in my soul)
makes me start to lose control (start to lose control)
And I'll melt right on the spot
I'm king of somewhere hot (hot)
King of somewhere hot (hot)
King of somewhere hot (hot)
King of somewhere hot (hot)

And you just rent yourself a tile
And dance the night away
Just like the locals do
A million miles from Robin Leach
Life is just a beach
So far out of reach.

Chorus
I'm king,(king) king of somewhere hot
I'm king (king) like every man should be
I'm king,(king) king of somewhere hot
Where the music in my soul (where the music in my soul)
makes me start to lose control (start to lose control)
And I'll melt right on the spot
I'm king of somewhere hot (hot)
King of somewhere hot (hot)
King of somewhere hot (hot)
King of somewhere hot (hot)

So hot
Music bridge

Some day I hope to find my queen
I know she'll come my way
Ill give her all my love
It's not a complicated thing
someplace I can swing
Where a man can be a king

Chorus
I'm king,(king) king of somewhere hot
I'm king (king) like every man should be
I'm king,(king) king of somewhere hot
I don't care how hard you look (care how hard you look)
OOOOOH You won't find me in the book (won't find me in the book)
Cause I'm here right on the spot. OWW!
I'm king of somewhere hot (hot)
King of somewhere hot (to trot)
King of somewhere hot (hot)
HOT TO TROT
King of somewhere hot (to trot)
(King of Somewhere Hot)
