Gold that gleams
I may not have
A butler, chauffeur
Do not wait on me
Nor a super jet does not fly
Me all alone across the sky.

This I’ve never known.

I do have riches far and wide
Far exceeding all that gleaming gold
Rich in life, filled with love
Friends and those who hold me up.

This I know is far better than
All that drips in gleaming gold
This I know
I have been told.
