You Can't Take it With You

Lyrics

Bumped up to first class on that flight
Though I might have done something right
Cause comforts rarely fall into my lap

But this CEO sittin’ next to me
Spent the next two hour constanstly
Talkin’ money, cars, and the things he had

He never asked what I thought
Just forged right ahead
But if he had
Here’s what I might have said

Chorus:
You can’t take it with you
You can’t take it with you
What you gonna do with all that dough
When you leave for the land the departed know
No, you can’t take it with you when you go

A long layover, I had to wait
Made calls on my cell as I sat at the gate
Found my iPod and a few books to read

Still bored, I went into the airport store
A magazine? A shirt? Hmmmmm. . . something more?
Maybe I should grab a bite to eat?

I wasn’t really hungry as I stood there in the line
And realized I’d better get the plank out of my own eye, cause. . .

Chorus:
You can’t take it with you
You can’t take it with you
Your baggage is bringin you down low
When you leave for the land the departed know
No, you can’t take it with you when you go

Bridge:
You may have security in all you have
And thank God you have not been a have-not
But when you board that plane to Glory
Security’s gonna strip you of everything you’ve got, cause. . .

Chorus:
You can’t take it with you
You can’t take it with you
The more we hold, the harder to let go
When you leave for the land the departed know
No, you can’t take it with you when you go
