Are You Havin' Any Fun?

Hey fella with a million smackers
And nervous indigestion
Rich fella eating milk and crackers
I'll ask you one question
You silly so and so
With all your dough

Are you havin' any fun?
What you gettin' out of livin'?
What good is what you've got
If you're not havin' any fun?

Are you havin' any laughs?
Are you gettin' any lovin'?
If other people do so can you
Have a little fun

After the honey's in the comb
Little bees go out and play
Even the old gray mare down home
Has got to have hay
Hey!

Better have some fun
You ain't gonna live forever
Before you're old and gray, still okay
Have your little fun, son
Have your little fun
Go!

Why do you work and slave and save?
Life is full of ifs and buts
You know the squirrels save and save
And what have they got
Nuts!

Better have some fun
You ain't gonna live forever
Before you're old and gray, still okay
Have your little fun, son
Have your little fun
