How many times have you heard someone say:
If I had his money I could do things my way.
But little they know that it # s so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.
Once I was winning in fortune and fame
Everything I could wish for to get a start in life # s game,
Then suddenly it happend, I lost every dime.
But I # m richer by far with a satisfied mind.
Money won # t buy back your youth when you # re old
A friend when you # re lonely or a love that # s grown cold.
The wealthiest person is a pauper at times
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind.
When my life is over, my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones will weep, there # s no doubt.
But one thing # s for certain, when it comes my time
I # ll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.
