    It is my hope that you can follow
    Because if I were to hit that big lotto
    You know, thirty to forty million or so.
    I believe I’d be set for life
    I’d try making the money work right
    to get what I want, and wherever I want to go.

    I’d hire my accountant, broker, attorney
    They’d be essential in my journey
    and aids in handling liabilities from my past.
    Then, I’d take care of all “my people” it’s true
    It is something I’d want and need to do
    Help them achieve some of the dreams they have.

    My kids will bring my first inspiration
    My concentration will be there education
    For whatever it is in their lives they’d want to do.
    I’d do my best to teach them,
    Through whatever venue I could reach them
    Be the father who supports and always comes through

    Like magic I’d take my Mothers silver
    And I’d turn it all into platinum...
    And, I’d take her “Corolla” and make it a “Legend” to drive
    No more mortgages for Dad
    In fact, he could retire and relax
    He’s done enough raising and providing for five

    Then my lady, my wife, my queen
    The one who has become my, “everything”
    The woman whose dreams I wish to make come true
    She’d have everything she wants and more
    For, I’d take her all over this world.
    Whatever in this world she wants to do.

    Better than any life I’ve known before
    Having so many options to explore,
    I could lose a need to labor, gain so much time.
    They say, “Money can’t bring happiness”
    And, I believe that to be true
    But, I say,
    “Money, D*mn sure, can make it easier to find”​

    I liked this, particularly the way you closed it, money isn't everything, but life is easier with it than without it.
