Satisfied Mind
How many times have you heard someone say
"If I had his money, I would 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 that I dreamed of, to get a start in life's game
But suddenly it happened, I lost every dime
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind

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 a man with a satisfied mind

When life here has ended, my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones, I'll leave, there's no doubt
But there's one thing's for certain, when it comes my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
