It glitters in the sunshine
And makes a fools heart twist
It has its very own story
That a fool just can't resist
The stream sings its song
As it moves along
Carrying the gold
That will let one grow old
Without a penny to ones name
If one follows this gold
One will never find wealth
Yet one can find health of the soul
Walking a path of glittering gold
Seeing the sky up high
One can find a peace as no other place
Could ever truly provide
So I will be a fool
And follow the gold
That one can never truly hold
And let the others chase the gold
That will bring riches if it's sold
I will choose the clear blue sky
The trees that grow around me
I will choose this place
That will forever bind me
To the beauty of the poor
That were led off shore
By their own fools gold
