First verse:
This is a worldwide rule everybody knows:
As soon as one has a bit of money he must become proficient.
My landsman earned a lot of money, he soon went into business with somebody
And now he comes to me crying and lamenting.
I answer him: It has to be this way

Don't go where you don't belong, it'll be healthier for you.
If you don't have the ability or the understanding, don't undertake it.
If you can't manage it and you don't understand it - don't try it.
