There's a mountain and it's mighty high
U cannot see the top unless U fly
And there's a molehill of proven ground
There ain't no where 2 go if U hang around

Everybody wants 2 sell what's already been sold
Everybody wants 2 tell what's already been told
What's the use of money if U ain't gonna break the mold?
Even at the center of fire, there is cold
All that glitters ain't gold
All that glitters ain't gold
Mmhmm

There's an ocean of despair
There r people livin' there
They're unhappy and each and every day
But hell is not fashion so whatcha tryin' 2 say?

Everybody wants 2 sell what's already been sold
Everybody wants 2 tell what's already been told
What's the use of money if U ain't gonna break the mold?
And even at the center of fire, there is cold
All that glitters ain't gold
No no
All that glitters ain't gold
No no

There's a lady 99-years-old
If she led a good life, heaven takes her soul
Now that's a theory and if U don't wanna know
Step aside and make a way 4 those who want 2 go

Everybody wants 2 sell what's already been sold
Everybody wants 2 tell what's already been told
4 what's the use of being young if U ain't gonna get old?
Even at the center of fire, there is cold
All that glitters ain't gold
No no no, no no
All that glitters ain't gold
Whoo!
Oh yeah

All that glitters, all that glitters, all that glitters ain't gold

Na na na na... (Gold...) {repeat}

Gold, gold, gold
All that glitters ain't gold, gold, gold
All that glitters ain't gold, gold, gold (Na na na na...)
All that glitters ain't gold, gold, gold (Na na na na...)
All that glitters ain't gold, oh
Oh yeah

1 2, 1 2 3, come on!

Na na na na... {repeat}

U r now an official member of the New Power Generation
Welcome 2 the dawn

All that glitters ain't gold... (Na na na na...) {repeat}
