Rich young man you think you can make it through the world on the things you got, yeah.
Well i'll tell you, i know it's true, you can't get to heaven on the things you bought, no.

They're gonna leave you
They're gonna fade away

What good is it a man
To gain the whole world
But to forfeit his soul?
What good is it a man
To gain the whole world
But to forfeit his soul?

Poor old soul, well he's got more hope than the kings of a thousand countries, yeah.
But what he owns ain't silver or gold, this boy is bound for glory, yeah.

He's gonna leave us
He's gonna fly away

What good is it a man
To gain the whole world
But to forfeit his soul?
What good is it a man
To gain the whole world
But to forfeit his soul?
It ain't no good for me
It ain't no good for you
To forfeit your soul
