Twisted: The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier Musical - Sands of Time/ Golden Rule Lyrics


JA'FAR:
Sands of time, take me back
Before it all went wrong
When love was but a song
And tomorrow shone as brightly as the sun
Teach me to undo what's done
Sands of time, take me back

(Dialogue)

Follow the Golden Rule
For life's a two way street
Keep that in mind and you'll be kind
To everyone you meet

Follow the Golden Rule
It isn't hard to do
Always treat others like sisters and brothers
And they'll do the same for you

Before you harm your fellow man
Ask this question first:
How would you wish that he treat you
If your fortunes were reversed?

Follow the Golden Rule
That's how I choose to live
Wow, simple reciprocity is always my philosophy
I get back what I give

(Dialogue)

Before you harm your fellow man
Ask this question first:
How would you wish that he treat you
If your fortunes were reversed?

(Dialogue)
