Cant Take It With You - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

Lead vocal: dean ford

Well i sympathise completely but there's nothing i can do
I am just a humble servant with a message here for you
Well i know you have good reasons and there's things you've got to do
But the boatman won't be waiting and he's leaving here with you
And you can't take it with you
No matter what you do
No you can't take it with you
Not the place you're going to

(one more mile, one more road, one last bridge, one less load)

Well i sympathise completely but there's nothing i can do
I am just obeying orders, i'm a simple soul like you
Well you really are persuasive, but i've heard it all before
And the boatman's getting restless as he stands upon the shore
And you can't take it with you
No matter what you do
No you can't take it with you
Not the place you're going to
Can't take it with you
