The Joneses I’ve never met personally
But watched them go by, fancy cars,
Posh houses the lot. Yet they are living a lie.
Don’t be envious even though you’re out
Of work. By this we all know that the Joneses
Are now broke.
The Joneses could be anyone, one wants to be.
Having all the wealth, thinking it comes so easily.
Don’t get me wrong, the point am about to make,
Their fortune and fame may come otherwise, and their
Entire life could be at stake.
The moral of the story is this. Use what you have
And in time you’ll get more than enough. Turn a blind eye
To what’s not yours, and work honestly with integrity, and enjoy
The benefits you achieve, it’s simply what you’ve got.
