The Mr H Family Emporium II

Hamilton / Robinson Family Tree – the sequel

CAN’T TAKE NOTHING

CAN’T TAKE NOTHING

 

You can make all kinds of money

And spend it with a will

You can do all kinds of dealing

To get some kind of thrill

You can hustle up a buck or two

Buy and sell a friend or two

Make a fast deal

Make it slow

But there’s one thing that you should know

You can’t take nothing when you go

 

Can’t take nothing

When you go

 

If you find love you’re a lucky man

Some of us can

Some of us can’t

But don’t you live for the yankee dollar

‘Cause when you’re down and you start to holler

It can’t come running to save your hide

It can’t let you out when you’re trapped inside

It can’t do nothing but buy and sell

It won’t help you out when you hear hells’ bell

There’s one thing that you should know

You can’t take nothing when you go

 

Can’t take nothing

When you go

 

SOLO

 

A monied man with nothing else

Ain’t got nothing at all

He can buy gleaming jewels

Live in a fancy hall

He can live and he can die

With no-one left to cry

‘Cause there’s one thing he did not know

You can’t take nothing

When you go
