Bill col -lec -tors gath -er 'Round and rath -er Haunt the cot -tage next door
Men the gro -cer and butch -er sent Men who call for the rent
But with -in a hap -py chap -py And his bride of on -ly a year
Seem to be so cheer -ful Here's an ear full Of the chat -ter you hear
Ev -'ry morn -ing Ev -'ry eve -ing Ain't we got fun
Not much mon -ey Oh but hon -ey Ain't we got fun
The rent's un -paid dear We have -n't a bus
But smiles were made dear For peo -ple like us
In the win -ter in the sum -mer Don't we have fun
Times are bum and get -ting bum -mer Still we have fun
There's noth -ing sur -er The rich get rich and the poor get chil -dren
In the mean -time In be -tween time Ain't we got fun.
