The byrds - Satisfied mind

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 in ten
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

Once I was livin'
In fortune and fame
I had all that I dreamed of
To get a start in life's game
Then suddenly it happened
And I lost every dime
But I'm richer by far
With a satisfied mind
