Your Mind Can Make You Happy

Your mind can make you upright. Your mind can make you feel.
Your mind can make you uptight. Your mind can make you reel.

Your mind can make you hero. Your mind can make you win.
Your mind can make you zero. Your mind can make you sin.

Your mind can make you magic. Your mind can make you trick.
Your mind can make you tragic. Your mind can make you sick.

Your mind can make you holy. Your mind can make you more.
Your mind can make you lowly. Your mind can make you poor.

Your mind can make you truthful. Your mind can make you high.
Your mind can make you ruthful. Your mind can make you lie.

Your mind can make you happy. Your mind can make you sad.
Your mind can make you sappy. Your mind can make you mad.
