I don't ask for much,
I only desire a few things...
I want the breeze in the trees
And the flower's secret fragrance.
I want the innocence of a child
And Princess Grace's timeless elegance.
I want the power to stop hunger
And the means to make an end.
I want peace, goodwill and fortune
For all women, children and men.
You see, I don't ask for much.
I only desire a few things.
So as I search for ways to acquire
These tiny trinkets I've in mind...
Someone explain the phrase "means to an end"
If you would be so kind....

I'd like to oblige you, dear Sally my friend
But I can't explain the means to an end.
So I have consulted with Inspector Clousseau
As soon as we find out, then I'll let you know.

I'm short of an answer, dear Sally, but we can only hope Inspector Clousseau comes up with something really soon!
