"In a Shanty in Old Shanty Town" as written by Larry (adaptor) Clinton and Based On 'reverie' By Claude Debussy....
It's only a shanty
In old Shanty Town
The roof is so slanty
It touches the ground
But my tumbled down shack
By the 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

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
