Play Song
Give a man a horse he can ride,
Give a man a boat he can sail;
And his rank and wealth,
His strength and health,
On land nor sea shall fail.

Give a man a song he can sing,
Give a man a book he can read,
And his home is bright
With a calm delight,
Tho' the room be poor indeed.

Give a man a baby to love,
As I, little one, love thee,
And his life will be
Perfect as can be,
At home, on land, on sea.
