What I want


I said I want myself to be happy

Nah, that doesn’t satisfy me completely

I said I want my family to be happy, my wife and kids

Nah, that doesn’t satisfy me completely

I said I want my whole family to be happy, the seventh father side aunt and the eighth mother side aunt

Nah, that doesn’t satisfy me completely

I said I want my company to be happy, the managers and janitors

Nah, that doesn’t satisfy me completely

I said I want my country to be happy, the president and the financiers

Nah, that doesn’t satisfy me completely

I want the whole world to be happy, God and everything else

Money is not everything but a good measuring tool

To make myself happy, I need $100

To make my family happy, I need $10,000

To make my whole family happy, I need $200,000

To make my company happy, I need $1,000,000

To make my country happy, money will no longer do it

To make whole world happy, not sure if God can do it
