about

[Cuz you can't find the jewel that's already within.]

lyrics

Marco Polo desired a legendary jewel
Traveled far and wide, by foot, by mule
No matter where he looked it was not there
'Till one day he said, "What a load of hot air!"

Magellan traversed the seven seas and beyond
Look for me that way and you will despond
For I'm not just any ol' kind of jewel
I'm the kind you can't cut no matter the tool

Marco (Polo!)
Marco (Polo!)
Looking everywhere, it will drive you loco!
Marco (Polo!)
Marco (Polo!)
Never find me that way, not even on Pluto!

I hope this song will help you understand
You won't find me if you search the whole land
Like explorers named Lewis & Clark
Wherever they went, they kept missing the mark

Oh polo's a sport I can't understand
You hit a ball with a swing of forehand
Chase me that way, you can call it a day
Whenever I'm close you just whack me away

Marco (Polo!)
Marco (Polo!)
Looking everywhere, it will drive you loco!
Marco (Polo!)
Marco (Polo!)
Never find me that way, not even on Pluto!

Moral of this tale: don't be like Marco
Don't know what I mean? Your brain might be poco
Marco settled for trinkets and lockets
For you can never find what's in your own pockets

Marco (Polo!)
Marco (Polo!)
Looking everywhere, it will drive you loco!
Marco (Polo!)
Marco (Polo!)
Never find me that way, not even on Pluto!
