Charlie Rich

Charlie Rich - Life Has Its Little Ups and Downs

rate me

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!...
