"Sittin' on Top of the World" as written by and Chester Burnett....
One summer day, he went away
He's gone and left me, he's gone to stay
Now he's gone away, hey, and I can't worry, no, no
Because I'm sittin', sittin' on top of the world

Worked all the summer, worked all of the fall
Had to take my Christmas in my overalls
Now he's gone, I don't worry
Because I'm sittin', sittin' on top of the world

Going down to the freight yard
Catch me a freight train
I'm gonna leave this town, worked and got paid
I'm sittin' on top of the world

Now he's gone
And I'm sittin' on top of the world
Can't you hear me talking?

Now he's gone
And I'm sittin' on top of the world, yeah
