If I won the lottery and had lots of cash,
I’d pay off all of my debts in a flash –
A new house: not too big nor too ostentatious –
Just a couple more rooms, just a little more spacious.
If I won the lottery and was a millionaire
And had plenty of money, I’d be able to share.
I’d give some to my mum, to my sisters and brothers
And some also to charity for helping out others.
If I won the lottery and had lots of dough
Then off on a holiday as a family we’d go.
Not necessarily somewhere exotic with tropical weather,
Just somewhere to relax and have fun together.
If I won the lottery – unlikely, though, I admit
Since buying a ticket’s a prerequisite.
Would I really be happier, more content with my lot?
Though sometimes money’s a struggle, look at all that I’ve got.
I don’t need the lottery to feel rich as can be:
Two beautiful children, a loving hubby,
Food on the table, a roof over our heads
In a country where we can sleep safe in our beds
If I won the lottery, yes, I might have more wealth
But money can’t guarantee happiness or good health.
There are so many riches with which I’ve been blessed,
But a little more cash would be nice, I confess!
