the money tree calling

The money tree
It always makes the day
It always lure the mind
It will not go away

A man will leave his family
His wife and children to go
The money tree in his mind
On foreign land to seek his fortunes

The wife will suffer the loneliness
Everyday waiting for his return
The children may ask about their father
The answer is predictable

He is away overseas
Looking to enrich himself
The money tree calling
He can't refuse not to go

Once he has his own business
Running it quite well for many years
He gives it up to seek his fortunes
Believing he can make the grade

He forgets his age
Time isn't on his bidding
But the money tree calling
He leaves everything everybody behind
