“Greed is Good”

I do not need a Volpone-guide,
I do not need El Dorado bright.
Gold is not what I had ever eyed.
I will not succumb to that blight.

Are those steps of gold rush?
Are you shaking up for gold?
You are cutting in and I hush,
telling me what was once told:

“Greed is good!”

Even if I could…
doesn’t mean I should…
the Dream had always stood
for greed is good!

Will you find one day your peace?
Will you find one day your soul?
Your avarice will never cease.
It’s just a bigger and bigger hole.

Are those steps of gold rush?
Are you shaking up for gold?
You are cutting in and I hush,
telling me what was once told:

“Greed is good!”

Even if I could…
doesn’t mean I should…
the Dream had always stood
for greed is good!

Fingers make haste to gather coins,
drawing them towards your groins.
I needn’t turn to see you are pleased,
till you realize that you are squeezed,
by the gold you love so much.

Is that the sound of gold rush?
Do you want more of that gold?
You don’t cut in I don’t hush
’bout falsehood that was told:

“Greed is good!”
