Life Has its Little Ups And Downs
By Charlie Rich

I don’t know how to tell her
That 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!
