The Lyrics

I'm living with treasure but much too
Much I don't want to deal with this now
I had almost eleven children that could speak
Now just one's able to move his mouth

The walls in this place are all golden
And so are my sweet jars of wine
'Twas foolish to pray for this gold touch
I know I really messed up this time

And these poor servant girls must feed me
Because gold meat's not easy to chew
Think carefully 'bout what you wish for
Cause you know that it just might come true

And I can't scratch my ears when they're itchy
I suppose it is quite a surprise
With everything that I've been doing
I can see with my own human eyes

And I don't know how long I'll keep up
With my whole skin away from my hands
A treasure filled place was my hope but
This is not really what I had planned


And I don't know how long I'll keep up
With my whole skin away from my hands
A treasure filled place was my hope but
This is not really what I had planned


And I don't know how long I'll keep up
With my whole skin away from my hands
A treasure filled place was my hope but
This is not really what I had planned

This is not really what I had planned
This is not really what I had planned

Gold Iīd say. As a Trekker I would have tossed in a crossover golden bikini reference with "And this poor servant Leia must feed me", but thatīs just me. :-)
