Oh no, look it happened again
And I was having such a good day too then I started thinking
About the end

Just like someone the bank is coming for
I'm gazing sadly at the oil paintings on the walls and the Persian rugs on the floor

You can't take it with you, you know
Last planes got no room to stow
No shampoo or toothpaste, no wallet or phone
you can't take it with you, you know

Money isn't gonna buy you any real friends
But it sure can buy you some brand new ones, and a brand new place, and a brand new Benz

Why don't we get started on your own personal retirement plan
Florida condo or European cruise you're gonna have to watch it slip through your hands

So if you can't take it with you you might as well what the heck
Just drop a hundred in the tip jar and pick up the entire check
Money isn't fake cause you want a good deal
If you hold it too tight, then it isn't really real

You can't take it with you, you know
Last planes got no room to stow
No duty free champagne, perfume or cologne
You can't take it with you, you know
