4   -6  6  -6   7   6   -5 6   
How seldom will you meet a man
-7 -6    6    -6    7   6  
As thro' this world you go,
4 -5   5  -5   -6    -8 7 5    -5   -7
A man, I mean, who's satisfied with life,
-7 -7  -6  -7     -8   -6    
He may be blessed with wealth 
 6   -6      -8  6      6     -7  -4
but where's his health? Don't you know?
6   6     -6  -7  7    -8     -7  -6   6   7
His fight for millions brings him care and strife. 
-6  -6   6    -6    7   6     
The king both great and grand
-5  6   7 -5   5  -5  -6  -4 
Who has a land at his command
-4   5    -4  -5   6  -6    7 -7 -6  -8  
Will want his flag to reach another shore,
6  6    6    -6 -7   -6  6
Ah this life we lead is greed,
5    -5    6   -6   -7    -6 6
Tho' there are some things I need
6  6 -6  6   -6 -6    -7  -6  -7 6    7
If I had them I would ask for nothing more____

Припев:

7  -7 -7   6  7  -7 -7  6   6  7
All I want is fifty million dollars,
7   7    -7    -7 6  7    -7 -7   6   -6
And seal skins to protect me from the cold.
-6 -6 -8 8 -8   -6  -8     8     -8 -6 6    -7
If I  only knew how stocks would go in Wall Street,
-6  -6  -6 6   6 -6 6  -4   6     -6 6
And was living in a mansion built of gold.
7  7   7 -7  -7    6     7   -7 -7    6     -6 -7
If the Vanderbilts would let me spend their money
7  7 7 -7 -7  6  7  -7   -7  6 -6
If I only had an heiress for a wife
-6 -6 -8 8 -8    -6 -8   8   -8    -6    6    -7
If  I only stood in with the steel trust rake off
-6      6    -6   7    -7  -6 -6  6 -6     6    -5
Then... I... know that I'd be satisfied... with life.

4  4 -6  6  -6    7     6  -5
In a little brown stone shanty
6 7  -6  6     -6 7 6
Upon old Fifth Avenue
4    -5    5  -5   -6 -8 7 5  -6   -7
'Tis there I share my poverty with Pa's
-7  -7    -7     -6  -7 -8  -6   6   -6
But while things are coming hard for us,
-8  6  -5  6   -7  -4
I'm satisfied 'tis true,
6  6     -6 -7 7   -8 -7 -6   6  7
To smoke my little sixty cent cigars.
-6    -6  6    -6  7  6 
There are some people think 
-5 6  -7    -5   5  -5  -6 -4
A  farmer's life is but a  blank,
-4  5    -4  -5 6   -6 7   -7    -6  -8
And long for city's glamor night and day,
6   6  6  6  -6  -7     -6  6
But if to me the choice you give,
5 -5   6 -6   -7   -6  6
I will settle down and live,
6  6    -6 6  -6 -6  -7  -6  -7   6  7
In some quiet little village like Broadway____

Припев:

And all I want is partridge for my breakfast
A champagne fountain sprinkling at my feet.
Pierpont Morgan waiting on the table
And Sousa's band a-playing while I eat.
If I only owned the Western Union cable
If Hetty Green would only be my wife
If I only owned the Pennsylvania Railroad
Then... I... know that I'd be satisfied... with life.
