The simplest things in life are free,
Or at least that is what they say to me.
The simplest thing is saying a lie,
But that just makes people hurt inside.
The most beautiful things in life are free,
Or at least that’s how some perceive it to be.
But even beauty costs a lot,
When someone advertises they can make you “hot”.
(But that’s always advertised at the bottom of the screen
In a really small font where you can’t see a thing).
The most heartwarming feelings in life are free,
Or at least that’s how couples wish it would be.
Because somebody is going to have to pay,
For that wonderful horse ride you went on today.
The best things in life are free,
Or so MasterCard™ says on TV.
Well, maybe this is true…
But only if MasterCard™ pays for you.
