[Chorus]
All the girls are sitting on a pile of gold
All the girls—
And the boys you know they want—they want it
All the girls are sitting on a pile of gold
All the girls—
And the boys you know they want it, they want it

Boys we love you
Some of us don’t
But plenty of us do
You should treat us good
You do that and you know
We’re gunna-uh-uh huh
Share more of our goods with you

[chorus]

They want it. They want it
It’s economic
Beneath the warmth that we export
Of course some boys will try to push the prices down
By pushing girls around
I’ve seen some do this
Learned to see through this
They get scared
So scared maybe we’ll refuse to share with them
A gentle mass attack..... Exodus
Tell them
I know the truth that if you could
Learn to save enough to make some trade with me

[chorus]

Boys boys we love you
Some of us don’t
Plenty of us do
Treat us good
And you know we’re gunna
Share share share
Our goods with you

[chorus]

    General Comment"Your milkshake is good for more than just bringing the boys to the yard," as The Stranger so eloquently puts it.

    General CommentSex is only part of the equation. The metaphorical pile of gold is also: brains, caring, companionship, security etc.

    General Commentseems satirical more than metaphorical to me. about the mercantile aspects of heterosexual relationships.

    General CommentI agree with hypernation... but I also believe that the pile of gold is a vagina. I mean... they are sitting on them.

    General Commenti also see this song being about guys taking advantage of girls. maybe that's super obvious. also its about the way some guys take girls for granted, and use them for their "gold".

    General Commentohmygod, you got my favorite part of the lyrics wrong!

    "want it, they want it.
    it's economic.
    they need the warmth that we export.
    of course, some boys will try to force the prices down
    by pushing girls around.
    i've seen some do this
    learned to see through this
    they get scared, so scared
    maybe we'll refuse to share with them
    all join some massive sapphic exodus
    but tell them, "i know that you're brave enough
    and you could learn to save enough
    to make some trade with me."

    massive sapphic exodus is hands-down my favorite phrase used in lyrics ever.

    General CommentThis reminds me of that Greek play....I forgot what it's called. So obviously this comment loses credibility.

    Anyways.

    The women in it decide that in order to maintain power/control over their warrior husbands, they need to boycott sex. Then, obviously, their soulja boys will do whatever they want, whenever they want. And, in turn, they get laid. I think what the wives wanted was for the men to stop fighting so much....I can't really remember.

    But yes!

    Give it a modern day twist, and you have Pile of Gold.

    Be nice and you get a treat. Be an asshole, you ain't gettin' nooooone.
