Heart of Gold Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Growing up isn't easy to do
Especially for one who always knew
You would always come up second best
Is that why you have such bitterness?

The apple of your father's eye
And always by your brother's side
Then a little sister came along
And you found all the affection suddenly gone

But underneath that cold exterior
I know you've got a heart of gold
So aloof and so superior
But you've got a heart of gold

Watch out, don't get caught in the crossfire
Watch out, still growing up, she's in a rage
I guess she's reached that difficult age

Growing up is very hard to do
Everybody watching your every move
Your private life always on view
But jealously never really suited you

But I know that underneath that rude exterior
There's got to be a heart of gold
Underneath that hard exterior
Is a little girl waiting to be told
You've got a heart of gold
She's got a heart of gold

I couldn't understand your attitude
I only wanted to take a photograph of you
But I was shocked when I heard what you had to say
You picked up my camera and threw it away
I didn't really mean to ruin your day

Now I see you've got a little girl of your own
Little princess suddenly grown
And there's a man, he's smiling at you
He must have been the one who always knew
You had a heart of gold

Underneath that rude exterior
You've got a heart of gold
So aloof and so superior
But you've got a heart of gold

Underneath that rude exterior
You've got a heart of gold
Underneath that hard exterior
You've got a heart of gold

Watch her, she'll give you a broadside
But I know that inside
She got a heart of gold
