The Lyrics

I really thought that last night I had sold
A bag of pears in exchange for mad gold
I went to the bank and they made fun of me
Now it is clear my choice
Was as bad as can be

It's pyrite
It's gold for dimwits
I hate myself since I did this
I was badly tricked I want to cry
(It's pyrite)
Now how did I not see it coming?
My brain is dead
I'm such a dummy
I was badly tricked I want to cry
It's pyrite

I'm the sort of dunce who treasured rocks
As worthless as peanuts I sure was outfoxed
Now Forrest glowed with smartness compared to me
Gump made lots of money
And I could not perceive

Its pyrite
Yeah It's gold for dimwits
I hate myself since I did this
I was badly tricked I want to cry
(It's pyrite)
Now how did I not see it coming?
My brain is dead
I'm such a dummy
I was badly tricked I want to cry
Cause it's pyrite

Better not try to go buy my fruit snacks
I'll throw the stones you gave me right back

It's pyrite
It's gold for dimwits
I hate myself since I did this
I was badly tricked I want to cry
(It's pyrite)
Now how did I not see it coming?
My brain is dead
I'm such a dummy
I was badly tricked I want to cry
It's pyrite

It's pyrite
Yeah It's gold for dimwits
I hate myself since I did this
I was badly tricked I want to cry
(It's pyrite)
Now how did I not see it coming?
My brain is dead
I'm such a dummy
I was badly tricked I want to cry
Cause it's pyrite!

It's an original idea and that's a pretty big deal in my book. It's funny and also meets the pacing just fine. I think it's darn good. Be proud.
