VP_015187 EXCEPTION4When you get a bank roll piled up on the shelf Step right out and start in to enjoy yourself. 'Cause if you keep working 'till your race you've run You die and then your relatives have all the fun. Oh I EXCEPTION3When you're wealthy evrybody wants to know What you do and how you came to make your dough. People start to pan you ev'ry place you walk But if you got it, you should worry, let 'em talk. EXCEPTION2There's a lesson ev'rybody ought to learn To keep a dollar out of ev'ry two you earn. Save a little for a rainy day somehow; It's getting kind of cloudy and I'm starting now. EXCEPTIONI'm contended any place I chance to be As long as I get plenty of the do ray me. Money is the root of evil, so they say; I wish I had about a million roots today. Verse 1I've always been a rover; I never settled down. I could never honestly say I had the blues for my home town. When any place don't suit me, I never worry or sigh; I pocket book little stream So any place where I make money is Home Sweet Home to me. Verse 2I've never felt real lonesome; I'm never wearing a frown. I can always manage to make a lot of friends in ev'ry town. There isn't any one place That I could say I liked best; If hug and kiss little stream So any place where I make money is Home Sweet Home to me.
