Some things that glitter may be gold, ooh yeah
Some things that glitter may be gold

So let us mind what's there to see
Before our hearts become too cold
In spite of all that we've been told
Some things that glitter may be gold, ooh yeah
Some things that glitter may be gold, ooh yeah
Some things that glitter may be gold
