Goldfever Lyrics

by Rick Springfield

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 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 heart breaker
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 you 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
