stands lonely on his mountain
solitary climb has brought him there.
now can drink from wealth's gold fountain,
still he stands in deep despair.
owns his mounain, he now is king
of all he sees!
he cannot control the future,
control his destiny.
he contemplates three open gates
is wealth and one is fame.
third gate beckons him to enter
lives there for him to claim.
no hesitation and no regrets
lonely man strides toward his fate.
moves swiftly now, his heart is smiling
he enters life's third gate.
third gate, the gate of love
him to pass on through
find that very special someone
forever companion, a love that's true.
did not pass the third gate's welcome.
choose gate one or two would not be wise.
what good is fame and fortune
lonely tears dwell in your eyes.
now stands happy on his mountain
one and two are open wide.
through gate three he found his future
love stands closely by his side!
