Taking stock
Of what I have
And what I haven't
What do I find?
The things
I got will
Keep me satisfied
Checking up
On what I have
And what I haven't
What do I find?
A healthy balance
On the credit side

Got no diamond
Got no pearl
Still I think
I'm a lucky girl
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night

Got no mansion
Got no yacht
Still I'm happy
With what I've got
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night

Sunshine gives me
A lovely day
Moonlight gives me
The Milky Way

Got no checkbooks
Got no banks
Still I'd like
To express my thanks
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night
And with the sun
In the morning
And the moon
In the evening
I'm all right

Got no butler
Got no maid
Still I think
I've been overpaid
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night

Got no silver
Got no gold
What I got
Can't be bought or sold
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night

Sunshine gives me
A lovely day
Moonlight gives me
The Milky Way

Got no heirlooms
For my kin
Made no will
But when I cash in
I leave the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night
And with the sun
In the morning
And the moon
In the evening
They're all right

Got no mansion
Got no yacht
Still I'm happy
With what I've got
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night

Got no silver
Got no gold
What I got
Can't be bought or sold
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night

Sunshine gives me
A lovely day
Moonlight gives me
The Milky Way

Got no checkbooks
Got no banks
Still I'd like
To express my thanks
I got the sun
In the morning
And the moon at night
And with the sun
In the morning
And the moon
In the evening
I'm all right
