# He's the man

0:15:250:15:26

# The man with the Midas touch

0:15:260:15:30

# A spider's touch

0:15:320:15:34

# Such a cold finger

0:15:370:15:41

# Beckons you

0:15:440:15:46

# To enter his web of sin

0:15:460:15:49

# But don't go in

0:15:510:15:56

# Golden words he will pour in your ear

0:15:580:16:01

# But his lies can't disguise what you fear

0:16:020:16:05

# For a golden girl knows when he's kissed her

# From Mr Goldfinger

0:16:160:16:20

# Pretty girl

0:16:240:16:25
