    Lyrics

    You might have a happy family, nice house, fine car
    You might be successful in real estate
    You could even be a football star

    You might have a prime time TV show
    Seen in every home and bar
    But you can't take it with you

    You might own a great big factory
    Oil wells on sacred land
    You might be in line for promotion
    With a foolproof retirement plan

    You might have your money in copper
    Textiles or imports from Japan
    But you can't take it with you

    You can't take it with you
    Though you might pile it up high
    It's so much easier for a camel
    To pass through a needle's eye

    You might have a body of fine proportion and a hungry mind
    A handsome face and a flashing wit
    Lips that kiss and eyes that shine

    There might be a lot all around the block
    Long before your starting time
    But you can't take it with you

    You can't take it with you
    Though you might pile it up high
    It's so much easier for a camel
    To pass through a needle's eye

    You might have a great reputation so carefully made
    And a set of high ideals
    Polished up and so well displayed

    You might have a burnin' love inside
    So refined, such a special grade
    But you can't take it with you

    No, you can't take it with you
    No, no, you can't take it with you
