Lyrics

Beloved one, shorn of character
Lamenting a lack of luck
But how can you feast with Vultures
And then hope to shelter with Pigeons?
Whatever we haven’t got through honest labour never lasts long
Love and patience are very important
And do not forget good character,
Do not forget Truth
As you make your way out today
Do not forget good character

This life, so ephemeral, not worth taking so serious
There’s nothing you possess that you can take along when you pass
If you get into a high place, do tread carefully
Contentment and caution are very important
And do not forget good character
Do not forget love
As you make your way back home today
Do not forget good character

As time passes, mortal man has lost his way
He thinks a crown of gold is his ticket to Happiness
Time ticks by but humanity has forgotten ancient wisdom
They think material wealth is the path to peace of mind
