The Sum-Up

 It is not power and fame
 That make success;
It is not rank or name
 Rate happiness.
It is not honour due Nor pile of pelf: The pay-off is: Did you Enjoy yourself? A pal of days gone by I reckon more Of a success than I Who've gold in store His life, though none too long, Was never dull: Of woman, wine and song Bill had his full.
Friend, you are a success If you can say: "A heap of happiness Has come my way.
No cheers have made me glad, No wealth I've won; But oh how I have had A heap of FUN!"
