Poor King Midas has turned everything around him into gold - including his beloved daughter. Ruffus, as the king, renounces his greed for gold if only he can get his daughter back.


Everything's turning out gold,
Not quite the way I foretold.
So it seems that all along
I had it wrong.

I thought you're worth what you own
But it's my heart that's become precious stone.
Woe by me a fortune stoled,
The whole is sum that I can't hold,
My fortune's told.

Speak to me,
Say this is not for none.
Don't say I can't undo what I've done.
Hear me out,
I wish I could take it back.
This gold has turned me blue
And I'm fading to black.
Please please please come back.
Please make light of gold,
Before everything starts to unfold.
