Vila Song: Modest Ambitions

Modest Ambitions.
Tune: Blow the Man Down.
Tune can be heard at: http://www.niehs.nih.gov/kids/lyrics/blowthemandown.htm


I don't look for trouble, I don't look for power,
Restals aren't that insane
High status costs highly, you pay by the hour
I don't think I'd enjoy all the pain.

Enough in my pocket to keep me well fed,
Good food, piled on my plate,
Good friends and good wine and a warm, cosy bed
I'd prefer that to less certain states.

A pretty girl's smile and my little lad's grin,
Home life, simple and free,
And cash for the presents and treats to bring in,
That's all I need to satisfy me.

Oh wealth is a pleasure and status is fun
But I want to stay alive
And what good is blazing one day like a sun?
I'd rather go for less and survive.

I don't look for trouble, I don't look for power,
Restals aren't that insane
High status costs highly, you pay by the hour
I don't think I'd enjoy all the pain.
