"You Can't Have Everything" as written by and Grant Mclennan....
Say there, if you are a vexed one,
A dreary, weary and perplexed one,
I've got trouble and he's got trouble,
And you're no better than the next one!
You will find your share of bliss
If you'll just remember this;

You can't have everything,
Be satisfied with the little you may get.
You can't have everything,
Don't envy neighbours or the fortunes that they get!

Live and laugh and listen,
Don't be greedy,
Help the needy,
And ya gotta get lucky, yes indeedy!

Rich man, poor man, beggar or king,
You just can't have everything.
So thank your stars above
For a song in your heart,
A penny in your pocket
And someone in your arms to love.

You can't have everything,
Be satisfied with the little you may get.
You can't have everything,
Don't envy neighbours or the fortunes that they get!

Live and laugh and listen,
Don't be greedy,
Help the needy,
And ya gotta get lucky, yes indeedy!

Rich man, poor man, beggar or king,
You just can't have everything.
So thank your stars above
For a song in your heart,
A penny in your pocket
And someone in your arms to love.
