        If I could own this worlds gold        

        And be the king of every land

        If I had the power to control

        The mind and deed of every man

        If I could speak a single word

        And move the mighty universe

        Or breathe a sigh

        On a cloudy sky

        And make the clouds disperse

        If I could change everything

        With just a touch of my hand

        And I had not your friendship

        I'd still be less than a pauper

        In a cold and barren land.
