A satisfied mind

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 waitin'

In fortune and fame

Everything that I dreamed for

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


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 my life has ended

And my time has run out

My friends and my loved ones

I'll leave 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
