Well, I've heard tell of millionaires and billionaires and such
Who gathered all their treasures and still did not have enough
If money could buy peace of mind I guess they'd have it all
But all the money in the world won't hold you when you fall.

Chorus:
We've got a roof over our heads
And the kids have all been fed
And the woman I love most lies close beside me in our bed
Lord, give me the eyes to see exactly what it's worth
And I will be the richest man on earth.

Lord, when I wished I had the things that you gave someone else
I pray that you'll forgive me for just thinkin' of myself
I haven't been as thankful as I know I ought to be
I should be more than satisfied with all you've given me.

Chorus
We've got a roof over our heads
And the kids have all been fed
And the woman I love most lies close beside me in our bed
Lord, give me the eyes to see exactly what it's worth
And I will be the richest man on earth.

One thing is for certain it don't matter when you die
If you had a million or if you just got by.

Chorus
We've got a roof over our heads
And the kids have all been fed
And the woman I love most lies close beside me in our bed
Lord, give me the eyes to see exactly what it's worth
And I will be the richest man on earth.

Yes, I will be the richest man on earth...
