"When I Rule the World" is a single by American recording artist LIZ. It was produced by SOPHIE and released on July 17, 2015. The music video for the song was released on July 28, 2015, along with a behind-the scenes video exactly one month later.

BackgroundEdit

LIZ met SOPHIE at the Mad Decent studio in Los Angeles, California, with help from Diplo. SOPHIE was looking for vocalists for some of his tracks, so they got together in the studio and began working on another song. While there, he played LIZ the unfinished version of "When I Rule the World", which she ultimately decided to work on. LIZ and SOPHIE created several different versions of the song before at last settling on the final track.[1]

"When I Rule the World" debuted in an advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy S6 in June 2015.[2]

LyricsEdit

I rule the world, I-I rule the world
When I rule the world, I-I rule the world
I rule the world, I-I rule the world
When I rule the world, I-I rule the world

When I rule the world, then I'm gonna make you sweat
Dog collar 'round your neck, on your knees and scrub the deck
Oh, there's a spot over there, so I'll drag you by the hair
So, scrub it, rub it, whip it, dry it
'Til I tell you to stop

When I'm on the throne, it's a total freak zone
You can call me mommy and I'll throw a dog a bone
Better bite on that bone, or you're never going home
So, bite it, break it, hit it, lick it
'Til I tell you to stop

I rule the world, I-I rule the world
When I rule the world, I-I rule the world (When I rule the world)
I rule the world, I-I rule the world
When I rule the world, I-I rule the world (When I rule the world, the world, the world)

When I rule the world, then you're the little girl
You should do as I say 'cause things are gonna be my way
I rule the world, so get down on your knees
Better do as I please
Until I tell you to stop

When I rule the world, then I'm gonna make you work (Bring, bring!)
Stay alert, keep on pushing 'til it hurts
Oh no, look who's sorry, now they're answering to me
So, scrub it, rub it, whip it, dry it
'Til I tell you to stop

When I wear the crown, all the people bow down
I can be your daddy and you're gonna make me frown
If you don't, you'll be bound and thrown in the dog pound
So, bite it, break it, hit it, lick it
'Til I tell you to stop

When I rule the world, then you're the little girl
You should do as I say 'cause things are gonna be my way
I rule the world, so get down on your knees
Better do as I please
Until I tell you
'Til I tell you to
'Til I tell you to stop

When I rule the world, I-I rule the world
When I rule the world, I-I rule the world
When I rule the world, I-I rule the world
When I rule the world, I-I rule the world (When I rule the world)
I rule the world, I-I rule the world
When I rule the world, I-I rule the world (When I rule the world)

When I rule the world, then you're the little girl
You should do as I say 'cause things are gonna be my way (When I rule the world)
I rule the world, so get down on your knees
Better do as I please (When I rule the world, the world, the world)
Until I tell you to stop

When I rule the world, so things are gonna be my way
When I rule the world, so things are gonna be my way (When I rule the world)
When I rule the world, so things are gonna be my way
When I rule the world, so things are gonna be my way (When I rule the world, the world, the world)

'Til I tell you to
'Til I tell you to
'Til I tell you to stop
