Look here, I’ve got a gift
You can check my bona fides
I’ll find you buried treasure
As sure as we’re alive
In the end won’t cost you much
When you’re swimming in the gold
Hire me now before your neighbor does
And watch my visions unfold

Give me wisdom and sight
Make me mighty and right
Show me diamonds and pearls
Give me power and girls

This is the place to dig
My stone has told me so
No talking while we work
Or we’ll be left out in the cold
I see it with my spirit eyes
An angel standing guard
The spell is thick, but don’t despair,
I’m held in high regard

You should have known when you hired me
Your soul had to be pure
The ground has gotten slippery
The treasure gone for sure
Only the righteous can obtain
The riches of the earth
Call on me another time
When you’ve washed away the dirt
