Happy with what I've got - First draft of new song

Post by fleaaaaaa » May 15th, 2012, 6:08 am

I am not a rich man I dont own a fancy car
I dont own a big fat mansion, smoke cigars or eat caviar
If I had more money I would probably have more things
but I know that happiness is what money just cant bring

I'm happy with what I've got
I'm grateful for what I am and I am not
If money was all there was
could happiness be bought?

I am not a lawyer or a doctor or a star
I am just a peasant who strums on his guitar
Music meaning everything from when I was a kid
And when I was a teenager that's all I ever did


If I had more money I would probably have more things
but I know that happiness is what money just cant bring

I'm happy with what I've got
I'm grateful for what I am and I am not
If money was all there was
could happiness be bought?

So you can be a rich man if you must
I'll keep singing - in music we trust, in music we trust
I hope it all goes well for you, I hope you'll stay the same
and I will still remember you when you've forgotten my name

Thoughts?
together we stand, divided we fall..........

Not bad :) I really like the "in music we trust" part..,and I like the end a lot too, "I hope you'll stay the same, and I will still remember you when you've forgotten my name" as far as lyrics go.
