Music & lyrics by Vij Sodera

Better dry morsel
And peace and quiet
Than a house full of feasting
And full of strife
A wise son makes his father so glad
A foolish man’s mother has a time so bad
A really good friend loves you at all times
And a brother is born to stand up by your side

Sweet wisdom is made of this
Sure as the sun comes up following the rain
Heaven and earth may pass away
But these words will ever remain

A bribe is like a magic stone in the eye
Of the one who hands the money
With a wink and a smile
One gives so feely and yet
Richer does he grow
The one who gives the water
Will be watered don’t you know
Greed for this and that
Just brings trouble on your head
But the wise man sleeps all night
Peaceful in his bed

Sweet wisdom is made of this
Sure as the sun comes up following the rain
Heaven and earth may pass away
But these words will ever remain

Forgive an offence
This shows the love deep in the heart
But holding on a grudge
Surely pushes friends apart
A soft answer turns away
The man with evil eye
But the harsh word stirs the anger
Lurking deep inside
If a man returns only evil for good
Then the evil in his house
Will not go like evil should

The crown of the wise
Is their wisdom alright
But folly is the garland
Of a fool with head held high
The way of fool
Is only right inside his eyes
But the wise man listens
To the good friend by his side
Humility goes before honour and prize
And the fear of the LORD
Is instruction for the wise

Sweet wisdom is made of this
Sure as the sun comes up following the rain
Heaven and earth may pass away
But these words will ever remain
