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.
Well, once I was waiting on fortune and fame
Everything that I dreamed for turned to start in life's game
Then suddenly it happened, I lost every dime
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind.
--- Instrumental ---
Money won'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's a pauper at times
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind.
When my 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.
I'm gonna leave this old world with a satisfied mind...
