Fool's Gold    
     
Like a rabbit in a snare
Like a fish on the line
Like a fly in a web
Everybody does their time

Digging for treasure
ďXĒ always marks the spot
Until it does not
It does not

Thereís something I must tell you
In case you donít know
Even if it glitters, doesnít mean itís gold

Like a promise from a liar
Like a needle in the vein
Like a prayer said from your knees
Everybody plays the game

Going back to the well
But the waterís running dry
You donít seem to mind
You donít seem to mind

Thereís something I must tell you
In case you donít know
Even if it glitters, doesnít mean itís gold

Like the rabbit in his hole
Keeps on digging in the sand
A fool trades for birds in the bush
For the one in his hand

Digging for treasure
ďXĒ always marks the spot
Until it does not
It does not

Thereís something I must tell you
In case you donít know
Even if it glitters, doesnít mean itís gold

SOLO

Spent your whole life searching for Foolís Gold
