Intro -
You know... there's a lot of things in life worth living for.
But what'cha gonna take with you, when you ain't here no more?

Verse -
I was watching a millionaire on the T.V.
Made all his duckets selling fancy R.V.'s
The next day he was on the six o'clock news
Shot twice in the chest for his Versace shoes
That there story awoken my deep depression
and I got to thinking, what about his worldly possessions?

Chorus -

You can't take them with you when you're dead
Oh lord, you can't take them with you when you're dead
All the money you kept aside throughout your entire life
is going right to them ungrateful kids, husband or wife
Cuz you can't take it with you when you're dead...

Ain't that the truth, now.

Verse -
You know that really nice antique coo-coo clock?
That druggie son of yours will have it right on hock
and that diamond, oh you love how nice it shines
Well guess what? Your sister sold it for 19.99
When I die, this is what I want in my Eulogy,
The best things in life always were the free!

Chorus -
Because, you can't take them with you when you're dead
Hell no, you can't take that with you when you're dead
So love all them goods from now until the grave,
because in the end only memories will be saved
You know you can't take them with you when you're dead.
