Count your Blessings

It says in the Bible not to envy.
Always wanting what others have got.( geet )
To be happy with what you've been given.
And trust it will all be alright (awreet )

There is always someone worse off.
That is in a worse state than you.
We all should count our blessings.
And think, that could have been me.

There's days that we all get brassed off.
Wishing we had a bit more.
But there's plenty of folk that has nothing to eat.
And there's those who sleep on the floor.

You only have to look round about you.
It's there for everyone to see.
We all should count our blessings.
And think, that could have been me.

Whenever we feel a bit down.
Not thankfull, the way that we should.
A walk round a ward down at Christies.
Would do us a right world of good.

Stop crying and think yourself lucky.
That’s the right way to be.
We all should be counting our blessings
And think, that could have been me.
