Rick Springfield - Goldfever Lyrics




That's not the way, that's not the way of the world
Late night creeper with a Saturday Night,
Saturday Night Special
After some poor storekeeper, you need more and more just to
stay alive
Ooh it's a sin, baby you fight to win
But the rich get richer and the poor keep on living in ditches

Goldfever, let me tell you about goldfever
Don't you know that it's on old fever
And I tell you it's a cold killer
Said I'm talking about goldfever
Don't you know that it's an old fever
And I tell you it's a heartbreaker
Yeah I'm talking about goldfever
Let me tell about, let me tell you about goldfever

Big business man, incorporate this, incorporate that, yeah
You're making all them dollar bills
But you no longer see humanity needs love
Ooh, it's a crime, baby in 3/4 time
Go on with your billions
while the people keep on dying in millions

Goldfever, let me tell you about goldfever
Don't you know that it's on old fever
And I tell you it's a cold killer
Said I'm talking about goldfever
Don't you know that it's an old fever
And I tell you it's a heartbreaker
Yeah I'm talking about goldfever
Let me tell about, let me tell you about goldfever

And it hits you like a cold fever
It comes on like a real sensation
But it will leave you in desolation
Yeah, I'm talking about goldfever
And though I know that it's an old fever
It's a number one best seller
And it can put you in heaven or hell
Ah, let me tell you about goldfever
Don't you know that it's an old fever
And I tell you it's a cold killer
Let me tell you about goldfever
Let me tell you about, let me tell you about goldfever
