Just Enough

"Just Enough"

Lyrics by Elaine Bassett © 1999

 

There’s something to be said for having just enough

It gets you through when the going gets rough

Sometimes in life you gotta be tough

Don’t get me wrong what I’m talking ‘bout ain’t about the stuff

That just gets in the way

You spend your life accumulating

And maybe not today

But in the end you’ll give it all away

You can’t take it with you

So what’s the point

It’s about the strength to see you through so you can do

Whatever it is you need to do

Take it from a gal that knows

There’s something to be said for having just enough

 

It’s not about the clothes I wear

Or the way they stare

You can keep your money Honey

I know the truth

There’s something to be said for

Just enough

 

Everybody wants it

That’s true

It’s eluded even me a time or two

Ask anyone that doesn’t have it

And they’ll tell you

You can make do with just enough

 

There was a time I was uncertain of what the future held for me

I got down on my knees

And I prayed for just enough to see me through

And just enough turned out to be

More than what I needed

What I ended up far exceeded my expectations

Now everyday I pray for just enough to make it through the day

If you ask me I’m gonna say

There’s something to be said

For havin’ just enough

I don’t have a fancy house or car

But I do wish upon a star

Through the good times and the bad

I’ll always be grateful for what I have-

There’s something to be said for having just enough

It gets you through when the going gets rough

Sometimes in life you gotta be tough

Don’t get me wrong what I’m talking ‘bout ain’t about the stuff

That just gets in the way

You spend your life accumulating

And maybe not today

But in the end you’ll give it all away

You can’t take it with you

So what’s the point

It’s about the strength to see you through so you can do

Whatever it is you need to do

Take it from a gal that knows

There’s something to be said for having-

Just enough
