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
