Once I was rich but I’m better off with a satisfied mind.
I go down to the river, see the boats go sailing down, see the boats go sailing down,
I throw stones in the river, it keeps me satisfied, satisfied.
I live day by day, take every day as it comes.
Some are good and some are bad.
Some are good and some are bad.

Ah...Ah...I believe, I believe in you.

Spanish Johnny came in from the underworld last night,
Looking for a gang to rob a bank,
Looking for some easy money.
He said “Do you wanna join my gang”
I said “You must be joking”
Spanish Johnny got caught
And went to jail to be a nice fellow for a long time.
I just live from day to day
Knowing I’m better off than a bank-robber.

Ah...Ah...I believe, I believe in you.

As far as I am.
