Wealthiest of them all


I earned, earned and earned;
And thought I was wealthiest of them all;
But a wealthy wealthier then me stood tall.

Again
I earned, earned and earned;
And thought I was wealthiest of them all;
But again a wealthy wealthier then me stood tall.

Again
I earned, earned and earned;
And thought I was wealthiest of them all;
But again a wealthy wealthier then me stood tall.

And then
I learned, learned and learned;
Let the greed of wealth from my head fall;
And now I am wealthiest of them all, standing tall.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
