"What Money Can't Buy"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

What do you want that money can't buy

Family and friends close by

The guts to speak your mind

And more time, more precious time

What do you want that money can't buy


What do you want that money can't buy

Peace and Love and peace of mind

A safe world for kids to play outside

And more time, more precious time

What do you want that money can't buy


Time to read and learn and make your garden grow

Time to think out loud and let your feelings show

Time to listen to your heart and hear the wind blow

Time to wander around and go with the flow


What do you want that money can't buy

Clean water, fresh air, a view of the sky

A chance to be cool, a chance to be kind

And more time, more precious time

What do you want that money can't buy


Time to read and learn and make your garden grow

Time to think out loud and let your feelings show

Time to listen to your heart and hear the wind blow

Time to wander around and go with the flow


What do you want that money can't buy

Family and friends close by

The guts to speak your mind

And more time, more precious time

What do you want that money can't buy

Brief Description

Sometimes you write a song that you don't consider to be particularly outstanding, but others tell you it should be released anyway.  I don't know how to describe this song really, but it might be hokey, whimsical, preachy, 60's hippie-ish, and idealistic.  It's not a conversation song or a story song, and it doesn't have a chorus.  It could be that it's one of those songs where the focus isn't necessarily on the lyric, but the imagery combined with the music allows the listener to drift off with their own thoughts.  It is sort of a reminder song to not forget the importance of the simple joys in life I guess.  Something about the message and melody combination is pleasant to the ear, which is why I suppose people like it.
