King of Kensington  (Lyrics) ... See opening credits with song in video above.
- a Canadian sitcom set in Toronto, starring the late Al Waxman (2001)
- this one always
went over well when it was played in Canadian pubs
- many "fell in love" with the song and appreciated the message in the lyrics.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When he walks down the street
     He smiles at everyone   
  ("Hey, look, It's the King!")
    Everyone that he meets
Calls him "King of Kensington"
     ("How ya doin', King?"
       "Put `er there, King!"
        "Hey Karen! It's King!")


He finds his fortune in the faces
           that surround him
His wife says helping other people
           brings him luck
But then his mother tells
           a slightly different story
He's the only king around without a buck

He's... a... man among men
      The people's champion
And when destiny calls him...
        (buzz... buzz..
           "I'm sorry,

              that line is STILL busy")
He's "King of Kensington".  
       ("Whatta guy!")
