lyrics

[Verse 1]
Haven't you ever wished that you never had to go to work again?
Haven't you ever wanted a fancy car? Or maybe five or ten?
And wouldn't you like to use a gold-plated toothbrush?
Or write with a silver pen?
Well these are a few,
Of the things I can do,
Now that I have gotten the news:

[Chorus]
That you're dead.... (You're dead)
And now your attorney,
Gave me all your money.
You're dead... (You're dead)
What's left of your treasure,
Is left to my pleasure,
So now I can do all those things I've been dying to do.
You can't take it with you,
So I think I'll take it from you.

[Verse 2]
Maybe I'll go and fill up a swimming pool with lots of frozen peas.
Maybe I'll buy a football arena, and stuff it full of nacho cheese.
And just for the grins, I'll take the state of Rhode Island,
and decorate all it's trees.
And then I'll go buy,
A full-life-time supply,
Of disposable shoes.

[Chorus]
'Cause you're dead... (You're dead)
And now your attorney,
Gave me all your money.
You're dead... (You're dead)
What's left of your treasure,
Is left to my pleasure,
So now I can do all those things I've been dying to do.
You can't take it with you,
So I think I'll take it from you.

[Verse 3]
I'll have a fleet of personal jets that I will teach myself to fly.
Every morning, I'll start the day by parachuting from the sky.
I'll climb up mount Everest, and then go cave-diving,
And maybe one day I'll die?
But who would receive,
All the things that I'd leave?
It wouldn't really matter to me:

[Final Chorus]
When I'm dead... (I'm dead)
I think my attorney,
Would take all my money,
When I'm dead... (I'm dead)
I'd spent all that treasure,
On nothing but pleasure,
I wanted to do all the things I was dying to do.
I can't take it with me,
So someone would take it from me.
