There's a mountain
& it's mighty high
U cannot C the top
Unless U fly
& 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 {repeat}
Mmhmm

There's an ocean of despair
There R people livin' there
They're unhappy
Each & 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?
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
& if U don't wanna know
Step aside & 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...
All that glitters ain't gold
Whoo!
Alright

All that glitters ain't gold
Na na na... (Gold)
{repeat lines}
Oh
Oh yeah
1 2, 1 2 3, c'mon!

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

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