We spend our lives on spending
on stuff we do not need
with borrowing and lending
the world spins round on greed

We want a house, two car garage
and a place down at the shore
The landfill’s filled with garbage
and each day we’re making more

It’s called consumer spending
a life of give and take
I’m afraid we're just pretending
for such living is a fake

Christ said “life does not consist
of things we do possess.”
Peace and love should top our List
and Faith does more with less

When life is done we leave behind
the things we called “our stuff”
then at the last each one will find
it’s by giving we have enough - id
