I never got no doctorate, I don't know much 'bout art; The Wall Street Journal spins my head 'Cause I just ain't that smart. I'm stumped in fancy restaurants By all those forks and spoons; I heard Beethoven had some hits, But I can't name his tunes. I admit, in many ways, I'm ignernt as they come; Yet I've learned to live in wealth Though I may seem a bum. While other men may struggle, Their hearts so discontent, Current blessings ain't enough And so their lives are spent Believin' in the TV ads, ""A man can have it all!"", They're chasing with their credit cards Contentment in the mall; I can fish with cane poles And never come to feel A burning, aching hunger for Some fancy rod and reel. Pleased to have the things I got, I sleep in peace at night; I know there's things I'll never own, But life is still alright. Its not I lack ambition, I try to be my best; I ain't blind to what I lack, 'Just look for how I'm blessed.
