Celebrate Good Fortune



Wish everyone good luck, whoever they may be
There's no call for envy
It's for the potpourri
Pay tribute to triumph, whatever unique name
There's no call for envy
It's for the total game
Greet successful people, wherever they may dwell
There's no call for envy
It's for the mass as well
Applaud greater insight, however it must shine
There's no call for envy
It's for the large design
Pick a worthwhile virtue, whichever floats above
There's no call for envy
It's for the broader love
Celebrate good fortune, whenever it takes place
There's no call for envy
It's for the human race
