I licked a pot of gold, it turned my tongue yellow
So I cut it off, sold it and bought a yacht.
I saw a diamond mine, it made my eyes sparkle
So i gauged out my eyes and placed them in a ring
I listened to a song about a genie, it made me covetous
So I chopped off my ears, rubbed them and wished for love
I smelled a loaf baking, it made me hungry
I went to lick my lips but my tongue was missing
I touched the heart of someone who loved me, I couldn’t sense it
So I put on my ring and sailed away in silence.
