Well, I sympathize completely but there's nothing I can do
I am just a humble servant with a message here for you
Well I know you have good reasons and there's things you've got to do
But the boatman won't be waiting and he's leaving here with you

And you can't take it with you, no matter what you do
No, you can't take it with you, not the place you're goin' to
(One more mile, one more road)
(One last bridge, one less load)

Well I sympathize completely but there's nothing I can do
I am just obeying orders, I'm a simple soul like you
Well you really are persuasive but I've heard it all before
And the boatman's getting restless as he stands upon the shore

And you can't take it with you, no matter what you do
No, you can't take it with you, not the place you're goin' to

Can't take it with you
