how many times have you heard someone say,
"if i had his money, i could do things my way."
but little they know, it's so hard to find
one rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.
Once i was living in fortune and fame,
everything that i dreamed of to get a start in life's game.
then suddenly it happened, i lost every dime.
but i'm richer by far with a satisfied mind.
‘cause money can't buy back your youth when you're old,
or 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 life has ended, my time has run out,
my friends and my loved ones i'll leave, there's no doubt.
but one thing for certain
when it comes my time,
i'll leave this old world
with a satisfied mind.
