The Search

i have'nt got too much of it - i know it's true - it's true
for if i did - i'd gladly give some of this costly thing to you
for the world has so very little of this precious commodity
and it's lack has been the cause for countless wars as one 
can plainly see

oh, if i could just find one person with just an ounce of this
then the secrets would be oh so clear and then the treasure
would indeed be his

oh, if i could just find it - this thing i'm looking for 
and i don't mean to be greedy - but, i need just a little more
to help me with the hard times - when things i do turn out bad
for i know it's all because i did'nt care to use what little of this i had

now, i wish that i could make a certain recompense
yet, i fear that is shall spend my life in a search for

common sense
