THE GOOD LIFE:

THE GOOD LIFE:
What does the good life mean to you?
Health, wealth or fame.
I like to know where I am going,
But never forget from where I came.

To have good health would be lovely,
But wealth or fame dosen't mean a thing.
What good would that do me?
Why! I can't even sing.

The idea good life for me.
Is for my family to be proud.
Proud of the things I've achieved in my life,
And pleased to have me around.

To help someone less fortunate than I.
When and wherever I can.
If it's just to give them a smile,
Albeit a child, woman or man.

The good life is not about possessions.
Money, greed or gain.
It's all about helping people.
Through their heartaches and their pain.

If you can achieve these things my friend.
You'll have a good life I can tell.
Imagine at the end of the day,
You can smile and say "Yes, all is well".
