SATISFIED MIND     (Joe Hayes/Jack Rhodes)

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 winning in fortune and fame
Everything I could wish for to get a start in life's game
Then suddenly it happend, I lost every dime
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind

Money won't buy back your youth when you're old
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 is over, my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones will weep, 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.
