My mama told me the one and only truth. She said, “Spend your money and don’t look back, ‘cause you’ll never see a hearse with a luggage rack.” A poor man told me: “I don’t ask for much.” A poor man told me: “I don’t ask for much.But I wonder if I’ll ever have enough.” A rich man told me: “I don’t ask for much.”A rich man told me: “I don’t ask for much.One more million might be just enough.” But my mama told me the one and only truth.
