    I'm up in the world,
    but I'd give the world to be where I used to be,
    A heavenly nest,
    where I rest the best,
    means more than the world to me.

    It's only a shanty
    in old Shanty Town
    the roof is so slanty it touches the ground.
    But my tumbled down shack by an old railroad track,
    like a millionaire's mansion is calling me back.

    I'd give up a palace if I were a king.
    It's more than a palace, it's my everything.
    There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
    in a shanty in old Shanty Town.
