Jerry Lee Lewis – Life Has Its Little Ups And Downs lyrics

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 that dress in Baker's window
And it breaks my heart to tell her she'll have to wait
Mhm cancel all the plans to celebrate
But I can take it all with a smile and not a frown
She knows life has it's little ups and downs like ponies on a merry go round
And no one grabs a brass ring every time but she don't mind she don't mind
She wears a gold ring on her finger and it's mine
Those new house plans we've had so long I guess will gather dust another year another year
And the daffodils are blooming that she planted way last fall upon the hill and over by the gate
Lord knows I hate to say again we'll have to wait
But you can bet that she will take it with a smile and not a frown
You knows life has it's little ups and downs...
