Born in a leaf of gold.
My ancestors The Liz'ards'
Here before money evolved.
I can change my colour to reflect
who I am,
To shock or amuse any creature or man.
I want to blend with the popular crew,
Bide my time then change my hue.
I want your attention
I want your eyes,
It's nothing to do with being worthy or wise.
See me! See me! I have this need,
It makes me wealthy living on greed.
If you can't out shine me then don't even try,
I don't care if you live or die.
