Title: Is This Crown Gold?
ttto: It Had to be You

Is this crown's gold pure?
How can I be sure?
The jeweler is just
Someone I might trust.
Was I premature?
How can I assure
It isn't impure.
There must be a way.
Naivete
Might make me poor.

But does this make sense?
The gold is most dense.
If volume is right,
It will be too light,
If it is impure.
Archimedes says it's a rule
To ignore him, I'd be a fool
Check volume and weight
To see if it's straight
Or if I've been screwed

Guessing a lyricist's opinions from his songs is as futile as
guessing an author's opinions from his novels.

I forgot to mention that one line works best with a scansion
hammer. Try putting the accent on the last syllable of Archimedes.
