Now if the aim in your life is to settle me down
I couldn't change my point of view
I got a lady in red at the back of my head
But the woman in white is you

Do you wanna be the only one
Fade away in the mornin' sun
I could love you all of my life, you are my wife
Haven't I let you know

We don't need no buried treasure, no buried treasure, we don't need it
We don't stand on ceremony but life is phony in spite of it
You can never be all you wanna be when you're searchin' for gold
We don't need no buried treasure, I've still got you
(Still got you, still got you)
I''ve still got you in my soul

Well it's a long way down and you gotta get up
You gotta figure on a master plan
You couldn't do it, if you don't get ready
You'll be beaten by the other man

Do you wanna be the last one in
Play the game that you just don't win
I can see me makin' you cry, sayin' goodbye
But I could never let you go

We don't need no buried treasure, no buried treasure, we don't need it
We don't stand on ceremony but life is phony in spite of it
You can never be all you wanna be when you're searchin' for gold
We don't need no buried treasure, I've still got you
(Still got you, still got you)
Still got you in my soul

Well you're takin' my life in the palm of your hand
Make you mine for another day
Ain't nobody doesn't need anybody
When the good times turn away

I don't wanna be the lonely one
Fade away in the evenin' sun
I could love you all of my life, you are my wife
Haven't I told you so

We don't need no buried treasure, no buried treasure, we don't need it
(Baby we don't need it)
We don't stand on ceremony but life is phony in spite of it
(In spite of it)
You can never be all you wanna be when you're searchin' for gold
We don't need no buried treasure, I've still got you
(Still got you, still got you)
Still got you in my soul
(We don't need it, we don't need it)

(We don't need no buried treasure)
We don't need no buried treasure, we don't need it
(Baby we don't need it)
We don't stand on ceremony but life is phony in spite of it
(In spite of it)
You can never be all you wanna be when you're searchin' for gold
(We don't need no buried treasure)
We don't need no buried treasure
(Still got you, still got you)
Still got you in my soul
(We don't need it, we don't need it)

(We don't need no buried treasure)
We don't need no buried treasure, we don't need it
(Baby we don't need it)
We don't stand on ceremony but life is phony in spite of it
(Life is phony in spite of it)
You can never be all you wanna be when you're searchin' for gold
(We don't need no buried treasure)
We don't need no buried treasure
(Still got you, still got you)
Still got you in my soul
(We don't need it, we don't need it)

(We don't need no buried treasure)
We don't need no buried treasure, we don't need it
(Baby we don't need it)
