Bill collectors gather 'Round and rather, Haunt the cottage next door,
Men the grocer and butcher sent, Men who call for the rent,
But within a happy chappy, And his bride of only a year,
Seem to be so cheerful, Here's an ear full, Of the chatter you hear.
Ev'ry morning Ev'ry eveing, Ain't we got fun,
Not much money, Oh but honey, Ain't we got fun.
The rent's unpaid dear, We haven't a bus,
But smiles were made dear, For people like us.
In the winter in the summer, Don't we have fun,
Times are bum and getting bummer, Still we have fun.
There's nothing surer, The rich get rich and the poor get children,
In the meantime, In between time, Ain't we got fun.
Listen to Perry Bechtel play this song on the Plectrum Banjo (mp3)
