Who needs great riches and wealth
Who needs a streamlined limousine
When most of all is good health
Or longing for times that have been
Everyday is full of surprises
The arc of a rainbow, a glimpse of sun
From the moment the sun rises
The quiet when my day is done
We don’t need diamonds or gold
Or even reasons to succeed
We have, love, hope and health
These are true riches indeed.
