There's a big hole in the ground
There's a big fight all around
There's a big hole in the ground
For the fools gold

And everything is precious, and everything is clear
I don't want to have you just to hold you near
Maybe we will realize when we grow old
That life is worth much more than any gold

There's a big hole in the ground
There's a big fight all around
There's a big hole in the ground
For the fools gold

And I have seen these people
I have seen their grief
They have a big desire to feed
But sometimes I see them, these lovers of gold
I'd like to throw them in and bury them in that hole

There's a big hole in the ground
There's a big fight all around
There's a big hole in the ground
For the fools gold

I just hope we realize when we grow old
That life is worth much more than any gold
Just big fight,
In a big hole,
For the fools
