A wise man once said, "life is easy to explain
You can win the world and still not have a thing".
He said, "the only thing you keep is what you give away
Good or bad it all comes back seven-fold someday".


There is only one sure thing I know,
all of your possessions - all your silver and gold,
won't stop the hunger pains down deep in your soul,
cause you can't take it with you when you go.

He said, "you don't need a nickel to be the richest man alive,
wisdom is the only wealth you take from this life".
He said, "the riches of this world can shackle the soul,
like the links in a chain that anchor the boat".

All of your possessions, all your silver and gold
won't stop the hunger pains down deep in your soul,
cause you can't take it with you when you go.
