Those men who lust for land
And for riches strange and new
Who love those trinkets of desire
Oh they never will have you

And they’ll never know the gold
or the copper in your hair
How can they weigh the worth
Of you so rare

–Suzanne Vega, The World Before Columbus

It loses something without the music.
