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
