I've hung out with people with money,
And I've hung out with people without
I've had friends in high cotton honey,
And friends with beans for a bank account
Now what I've learned is to short for a book,
And to long for a bumper sticker
In this ol' world there ain't nothin' for sure,
But far as I can figure

CHORUS:

You can't get rich in Las Vegas
You can't retire on minimum wages
But with a little bit of love,
And some cable TV
We can be happy, relatively happy
Cool as a glass of ice tea
Happy as we wanna be

Life dishes out some difficult lessons
Life might hit us with a couple low blows
But when we stop and count up our blessin's
It takes ten fingers and a couple of toes
Now I've found out what really counts
Is what they don't teach in college
'Cause it says right here on page number one
In the book of common knowledge

CHORUS:

Yeah with a little bit of love
And some cable TV
We Can be happy, relatively happy
Cool as a glass of ice tea
Happy as we wanna be
