The life I've always wanted
I'll be working for somebody else
I'll be dreaming of a live of ease

Drag my furs on the ground
To bring me anything
I'll revel in their attention

Champagne and caviar
Cause you know who we are
And know what money's worth
Was having mountains o' nothing at birth
Oh they tell me
They tell me
Renounce all those material things you gained by

This is the dream
Or make you queen
I'll have it all prearranged
For me and all my mountains o' things
Mostly I feel lonely
Good people are only
It's gonna take all my mountains o' things
Keep all my enemies away
