Over yonder wanders

The vagabond Saunders

Seeking his fame and fortune.

He's not asking for much,

Just a tad and a touch

And a little bit more than his portion.

 

But as I would say,

"That is not the way

For fortune, to have and to hold.

To have your druthers

And the kindness of others

Will not fill your pot with gold."

 

You must work at a wage

From a legal age,

Saving one-fourth from the start.

Drinking is out!

And drugs, no doubt,

Would tare your future apart.

 

It is the simplest of plans

And it works for its fans,

Even for some in the ghetto.

But there's another way

For the few that can say,

"Oh my God, I hit the Lotto!"
