Cities of gold,
Tales that are told,
Promises of the most wonderful things!
Go there we must,
For riches I lust,
Oh don’t you want to live like a king!

This dream won’t rid,
The riches are hid,
I've searched almost all of my life.
Nowhere is the city,
Oh what a pity,
Lust for riches gave me nothing but strife.

Streets of gold,
Another story I’m told,
Promises of grand eternal things!
A place above,
Nothing but love,
And there resides the real king!

Sometimes people search for riches, but real riches are not found here.
