 Ain’t We Got Fun Lyrics

Bill collectors gather
‘Round and rather
Haunt the cottage next door

Men the grocer and butcher sent
Men who call for the rent
But within a happy chappy
And his bride of only a year

Seem to be so cheerful
Here’a an earful
Of the chatter you hear

Chorus

Ev’ry morning, ev’ry evening
Ain’t we got fun
Not much money, Oh by honey
Ain’t we got fun

The rent’s unpaid dear
We haven’t a bus
But smiles were made dear
For people like us

In the winter
in the summer
Don’t we have fun

Times are bum and
getting bummer
Still we have fun

There’s nothing surer
The rich get rich
and the poor get children

In the meatime
In between time
Ain’t we got fun.

Second Verse

Just to make their trouble
Nearly double
Something happen’d last night

To their chimney
a gray bird came
Mister Stork is his name

And I’ll bet two pins
A pair of twins
Just happen’d in with the bird

Still they’re very
gay and merry
Just at dawning I heard

Second Chorus

Ev’ry morning
Ev’ry evening
Don’t we have fun

Twins and cares dear
Come in pairs dear
Don’t we have fun

We’ve only started
As mommer and pop
Are we down-hearted
I’ll say that we’re not

Landlords mad and getting madder
Ain’t we got fun
Times are bad and
getting badder
Still we have fun

There’s nothing surer
The rich get rich
and the poor get laid off

In the meantime
In between time
Ain’t we got fun.
