I got plenty o'nothin' and nothin's plenty for me

I got no car, got no mule, I got no misery

 

Folks with plenty of plenty, they got a lock on the door

Afraid somebody's gonna rob 'em while they're out a'makin' more

What for?

 

I got no lock on the door, that's no way to be

They can steal the rug from the floor, that's OK with me

'cause the things that I prize, like the stars in the skies, are all free

 

Say, I got plenty o'nothin' and nothin's plenty for me

I got my gal, got my song, got heaven the whole day long

Got my gal

Got my love

Got my song

 

<lengthy instrumental>

 

I got plenty o'nothin' and nothin's plenty for me

I got my gal, got my song, I got heaven the whole day long

Got my gal

Got my love

Got my song
