Mother told me when I was young ,
come sit beside me, my son .
And listen closely to what I say .
And if you do this it will help you some sunny day .
Forget your lust for the rich man's gold .
All that you need is in your soul ,
and you can do this if you try .
All that I want for you my son ,
Is to be satisfied .
And be a simple kind of man .
Be something you love and understand .
Be a simple kind of man .
Won't you do this for me son , if you can ?
I don't buy a myth that money and gold are the keys to a happy life .
I live like a rats on the street .
It was a brutal teacher , but I learn .
Yes , I learn .
