You Cannot Win 'Em All Lyrics

I was sittin' by the road, my head in a cloud
Wishin' that I had some wings
Wishin' for a scooter, a-wishin' for a train
Or any kin' o' movin' thing
Well, I looked at the trees
I looked at the sky
I seen it was a lovely day
I looked up the road, I looked at my feet
I picked it up an' walked away
Well, you cannot win if you do not play
No, you cannot win if you do not play
Well, I went to the fair, lookin' for fun
I think the whole world was there
I saw a fat man, I saw a thin man
I saw a little teddy bear
Well, I said to myself
"I know what I want. I gotta get a bear some way"
I heard a loud voice. It said a few words
It said, "You gotta take a chance an' pay"
Well, you cannot win if you do not play
No, you cannot win if you do not play
Pretty young Pam, you're bringin' me down baby
All ya do is make-uh me blue
I'm under the trees, I'm waiting alone
Tryna sing a song to you
Well, the night is so clear, the moon is so bright
You're wastin' it all away
You're up on a hill, I'm down here below
I'm tryna tell ya babe, it ain't okay
Well, you cannot win if you do not play
You cannot win if you do not play

I was sittin' by the road, my head in a cloud
Wishin' that I had some wings
Wishin' for a scooter, a-wishin' for a train
Or any kin' o' movin' thing
Well, I looked at the trees
I looked at the sky
I seen it was a lovely day
I looked up the road, I looked at my feet
I picked it up an' walked away
Well, you cannot win if you do not play
No, you cannot win if you do not play
Well, I went to the fair, lookin' for fun
I think the whole world was there
I saw a fat man, I saw a thin man
I saw a little teddy bear
Well, I said to myself
"I know what I want. I gotta get a bear some way"
I heard a loud voice. It said a few words
It said, "You gotta take a chance an' pay"
Well, you cannot win if you do not play
No, you cannot win if you do not play
Pretty young Pam, you're bringin' me down baby
All ya do is make-uh me blue
I'm under the trees, I'm waiting alone
Tryna sing a song to you
Well, the night is so clear, the moon is so bright
You're wastin' it all away
You're up on a hill, I'm down here below
I'm tryna tell ya babe, it ain't okay
Well, you cannot win if you do not play
You cannot win if you do not play
