Then I'd Be Satisfied With Life

Then I'd Be Satisfied with Life
(George Michael Cohan)

Never hit your grandma with a shovel,
It makes a bad impression on her mind.

All I want is 50 million dollars
And seal silk to protect me from the cold.
If I only knew how stocks would go in Wall Street
And were living in the mountains built of gold.
If I only owned the Pennsylvania Railroad
And if Hettie Green would only be my wife
If I could only stay sixteen forever
Then I'd know that I'd be satisfied with life.

All I want is wheatgerm for my breakfast
A Champagne fountain sizzling at my feet
While Rockefeller waited on the table
And (Guy) Lombardo's band playin' while I eat.
If I only owned Western Union cable
And if Hettie Green would only be my wife
if I could only stay sixteen forever and ever and ever
Then I'd know that I'd be satisfied with life.

Hello, my dear friend,
Don't run away from all this world,
It's a great big beautiful world
With fabulous happy faces around
Well, I can see this one over here, you lovely thing,
Why, it's beautiful, it's clean, and it's calm and it's modern,
If I can have them all, why, I'll tell you, I'll tell you
Then I'd know that I'd be satisfied with life.
