"You Can't Have Ev'rything" as written by and Mack/revel Gordon....
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 ev'rything
Be satisfied with the little you may get
You can't have ev'rything
Don't envy neighbors of the fortunes that they get

Live and laugh, and listen
Don't be greedy, help the needy
And you gotta get lucky, yes, indeedy

Rich man, poor man, beggar or king
You just can't have ev'rything
So thank your stars above for song in your heart
A penny in your pocket and someone in your arms to love

You can't have ev'rything
Be satisfied with the little you may get
You can't have ev'rything
Don't envy neighbors of the fortunes that they get

Live and laugh, and listen
Don't be greedy, help the needy
And you gotta get lucky, yes, indeedy

Rich man, poor man, beggar or king
You just can't have ev'rything
So thank your stars above for song in your heart
A penny in your pocket and someone in your arms to love
