You can't take it with you
'Cos you didn't bring it
You can use it while you're here
But when you go it's got to stay
You didn't write the song
You just learned how to sing it
You may bring a little sunshine
But you don't make the day

These shoes that I own
somebody else'll wear 'em
And the road that I'll walk
someone will walk again
And the loves that I've known
Somebody else'll share 'em
I'll just leave a couple of songs and things
To a few well-chosen friends.

A few well chosen friends
A few well chosen friends
We'll leave a couple of songs and things
To a few well-chosen friends.

Oh, now you don't have to tell me
That I'm the first to love you, 'cos I ain't
And I'm not young enough to think
That I'm gonna be the last
So I won't promise nothing
And you just might believe me
And let me sing one song with you
Before the band goes past.

Before the band goes past
Before the band goes past
Let's put it together and sing one song
Before the band goes past

Oh, you can't take it with you
'Cos you didn't bring it
You can use it while you're here
But when you go it's got to stay
No you don't write the song
You just learned how to sing it
You may bring a little sunshine
But you sure don't make the day.

You may bring a little sunshine
But you sure don't make the day

Oh we can't take it with us
'Cos we didn't bring it
We can use it while we're here
But when we go it's got to stay
No we didn't write the song
We just barely learned to sing it
We may bring a little sunshine
But we sure don't make the day
