Work all the summer and all the fall
Just trying to find my little Lenore
But now she's gone, and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world

One summer day when she went away
Just when she left me, she's gone to stay
But now she's gone and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world

There was days when I didn't know your name
Why should I worry and prayer in vain
But now she's gone and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world, alright

Going to the station, down in the yard
Gonna get me a freight train, [Incomprehensible] got too hard
Now she's gone and I don't worry
Because I'm sitting on top of the world

The lonesome days they have gone by
Why should I beg now when she's saying goodbye?
But now she's gone and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world
