THE SONGS OF
I'M JUST WILD ABOUT MOMMY
King:Gold! Did I hear gold?
Miller: Gold! Did I say gold?
King: Oh to behold, Straw into gold
Miller: I was too bold, I spoke of gold
Oh blessed me, I’m a crafty king.
I take what I can from my underlings
But few can offer me what makes my greedy heart sing.
I’m talkin’ ‘bout an offer of gold … gold … gold
Gimme gimme gold.
Oh wretched me, I’m a loose-lipped lout
I’ve put my foot right in my mouth
And now I’m in a bind that I cannot get out of.
All because I promised him gold … gold … gold
King: I will line my halls in gold;
they’ll shine most splendid
Miller: I will hang on dungeon walls
King: I’ll flaunt my wealth to fellow kings
with boasts and cackles.
Miller: I will spend my golden years
in chains and shackles.
Both: … all because of gold … gold … gold
Elemental gold. Pretty shiny gold
Never enough gold.
