Charlie Rich - Life Has Its Little Ups and Downs Lyrics

I don't know how to tell her yhat I didn't get that raise in pay today
And I know how much she wanted the dress
In Baker's window, and it breaks my heart to see her have to wait
And cancel all her plans she made to celebrate.

But I can count on her to take it with a smile and not a frown
She knows that life has its little ups and downs
Like ponies on a merry-go-round
And no one plants the grass green every time
But she don't mind.

She wears a gold ring on her finger and it's mine
The new house plans we've had so long
I guess will gather dust another year
And the daffodils are blooming that she planted way last fall
Upon the hill, and over by the gate.
And Lord knows I hate to say again we'll have to wait.

But you can bet that she'll just take it
With a smile and not a frown
She knows that life has its little ups and downs
Like ponies on a merry-go-round.
And no one plants the grass green every time
But she don't mind.

She wears a gold ring on her finger
And I'm so glad that it's mine.

She wears a gold ring on her finger
And I'm so glad that it's mine!...
