Her home is a jungle
A struggle to survive
Her street's too
Hot to handle
Makes your blood
Run cold as ice

But there's no evil
Strong enough... oh no
Her faith in love will rise above

Keep on shinin' golden girl
Light a candle for the world
Take your fire from inside
Warm the darkness - light the night
Bring your heaven to the ground
Never let them tear it down
So much soul when you're glowin'
Golden girl

Her heart cries out yearning
For those without a prayer
But the dues she pays unending
Is the cross she chose to bear

And there's no evil
Strong enough... no no
Her faith in love will rise above

Keep on shinin' golden girl
Light a candle for the world
Take your fire from inside
Warm the darkness - light the night
Bring your heaven to the ground

Never let them tear it down
So much soul when you're glowin'
Golden girl

And there's no evil
Strong enough... no no
Her faith in love will rise above

Keep on shinin' golden girl
Light a candle for the world
Take your fire from inside
Warm the darkness - light the night
Bring your heaven to the ground
Never let them tear it down
So much soul when you're glowin'
Golden girl

Won't you keep on, 
Won't you keep on
Won't you keep on, 
Won't you keep on
Keep on, keep on shining

Keep on shinin' golden girl
Light a candle for the world
Take your fire from inside
Warm the darkness - light the night
Bring your heaven to the ground
Never let them tear it down
So much soul when you're glowin'
Golden girl
