TREASURE

TREASURE
Operator, fornicator
Grabbing and duping your friends
Wheeling and dealing
Tricking and stealing
Double-crossing, double-dealing
Renting and selling
Buying, shopping, lying, leasing
Lending and swapping
Bullion bonds and real estate

Sorry fella, it’s too late
Don’t slobber, I don’t wait

Cheating for a million
Cheating for a dime
Cheating is cheating boy, every time

You two-bit swindler millionaire
Well now it’s over, I don’t care

Sorry fella, it’s too late
Don’t slobber, I don’t wait
You will never
Never, never see the sun again
You’ll never
Never see the sun again
You’ll never
Never see the sun again

Facts:

  • To play this song on guitar, it should be tuned DADGBE.
  • This song evolved into a Now song called Obsession.
  • After lunch and a few ales, another version of this song was recorded. It was arguably not quite entirely triumphant.
  • It is possible that the first verse of the song was taken from the play Everyone itself, so may be acredited to Franz Frederick, its author.
