"Remember the City, the city remember,
Where treasure is hidden under the ground!
The city, the city, always remember,
that's where the treasure will be found!
There's buried treasure in the ancient city,
remember, remember, from times of old!
What's hidden will come to light again,
it's far more precious, than diamonds and gold!"
