The man wears a wide grin
Seems that smiling is all he does
Waved goodbye to his children
As they climbed into the schoolbus

He whistled a slow waltz
As he danced across the front yard
And he thanked all his lucky stars

He put his arms around his sweet wife
He rubbed her wedding ring
Said i'll love you for the rest of our lives
Come whatever our lives may bring

He whistled a slow waltz
As he danced across the front yard
And he thanked all his lucky stars

One year when the money was bad
And his boy asked him how they would live
He said don't worry boy the family's what we have
Sometimes you gotta take
Other time's you gotta give
Some year's you're flush
But it's never as good as you think it will be
Other year's you're broke
But it's never as bad as you think it will be
Money don't mean nothing at all
Money don't mean nothing at all
Money don't mean nothing at all

He whistled a slow waltz
As he danced across the front yard
And he thanked all his lucky stars
