Can't Take It With You
Music and Lyrics by Roger Linder - 12/31/1974




Mother & Father
It's your birthday, you're getting older.
As each year passes, a little bolder.
A long life lies yet before you,
So fill it well and they'll be more

You can't take it with you when you die
Take advantage of it now and you'll get by.

Another day, another dollar.
You'll lead a pack, and they will follow.
They'll understand the game you'll play
And soon you'll hear the words they say

You can't take it with you when you die
Take advantage of it now and you'll get by.

Happy birthday little one, our little son, you're number one.
Felicitations to our kin, a crashing din will bring you in.

The years that follow will be fullfilling
So live them well, always be willing
To change your ways to please the people.
Your name will shout from hills and steeples.

You can't take it with you when you die
Take advantage of it now and you'll get by.
