Be Thankful For What You've Got

"Be Thankful For What You've Got" —Austin, 11

 

If you've got fancy things
Or even some bling, bling
Like a nine carat ring
Or a diamond on a string

 

Give the necklace to a mom
And the ring to a friend

And maybe they'll pass it on again


You should be thankful
For what you've got

And, if you've got a lot

If you've got a lot
You should give it away

Give it away
You should give it away to kids
And they'll be thankful one day


I could go on all day
And name fancy things

Like Lambos, Ferraris
Or even gold rings

 

But that doesn't matter
Just give it away
You should be thankful

For the life you've got any day

 

You should be thankful
For what you've got

And, if you've got a lot

If you've got a lot
You should give it away

Give it away
You should give it away to kids
And they'll be thankful one day

 

You should be thankful
For what you've got

And, if you've got a lot

If you've got a lot
You should give it away

Give it away
You should give it away to kids
And they'll be thankful one day

 

If you've got fancy things
Or even some bling, bling
Like a nine carat ring
Or a diamond on a string
