"The King and Queen of America" is a song recorded by pop music duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart and produced by Stewart. The track appears on their album "We Too Are One" and was released as the album's third UK single in January 1990.

The song's music video showed Lennox and Stewart in a variety of costumes and settings which parodied various aspects of American pop culture, including a game show host and hostess, singing cowboy and cowgirl à la Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, and Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

Although not released as a single in the United States, "The King and Queen of America" received a fair amount of airplay on MTV.
