I didn't find this great song in the database.
-Joe Offer-

(Red Hayes & Jack Rhodes)

How many times have you heard someone say
If I had his money, I'd do things my way
But little they know, that it's so hard to find
One rich man or woman with a satisfied mind

Once I was lucky in fortune and fame
Had all that I needed to make a start in life's game
then suddenly it happened, I lost every dime.
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind.

For money can't buy back your youth when you're old
Or a friend when you're lonely, or a heart that's grown cold
The wealthiest person is a pauper at times
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind

When my life is over and my time has run out
My friends and relations, I'll leave them no doubt
But one thing's for certain, when it comes to my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind

One thing's for certain, when it comes my time,
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
