this is from Nightmare Before Christmas...the main character, Jack sings it because he's missing something in his life, even though he appears to have everything.
There are few who deny at what I do I am the best
All my talents are renowned far and wide.
When it comes to suprises in the full moon night
I excell without even trying.
With the slightest little effort of my ghost like charms
I've seen grown men give out a shriek
With the wave of my hand and a well placed moan
I have swept the very bravest off their feet.
And year after year it's the same old routine
And I grow so weary of the sound of screams
And I, Jack, the Pumpkin King,
Have grown so tired of the same old thing.
Oh somewhere deep inside of these bones,
An emptiness began to grow
There's something out there far from my home,
A longing that I've never known.
I'm a master of fright and a demon of light
And I'll scare you right out of your pants.
To a guy in Kentucky I'm Mister Unlucky
And I'm known throught England and France.
And since I am dead, I can take off my head
To recite Shakespearian quotations
No animal nor man, can scream like I can
In the fury of my recitations.
But who, well, could ever understand
That the Pumkin King with his skeleton grin
Would tire of his crown? If they only understood
I'd give it all up, if I only could.
Oh there's an empty place in my bones
That calls out for something unknown
The fame and praise come year after year
Does nothing for these empty tears...
