I'm sitting on top of the world, Just rolling along Just rolling along. I'm quitting the blues of the world, Just singing a song Just singing a song. Glory, hallelujah, I just phoned the parson, "Hey, Par, get ready to call!" Just like humpty dumpty I'm ready to fall. I'm sitting on top of the world, Just rolling along Just rolling along. I'm quitting the blues of the world, Just singing a song Just singing a song. (Contributed by Bette Carl - June 2004) ********************* I'M SITTING ON TOP OF THE WORLD (Al Jolson) Ray Henderson (m) Sam M Lewis (l) Joe Young (l) 1925 as rec by Al Jolson Dec 21st 1925 Don't want any millions, I'm gettin' my share, 've only got one suit, just one, That's all I can wear! A bundle of money Won't make you feel gay, A sweet little honey Is makin' me say; I'm sittin' on top of the world, Just rollin' along, just rollin' along; And I'm quittin' the blues of the world, Just singin' a song, just singin' a song. Glory, hallelujah! I've just phoned the parson, "Hey par, get ready to call!" Just like Humpty Dumpty, I'm goin' a fall. I'm sittin' on top of the world, Just rollin' along, just rollin' along. Some people have diamonds And beautiful pearls, While others have children, Just kiddies with pearls. Keep all of your fortune, Keep all of your fame, I just found a sweetie Who's changin' her name! I'm sittin' on top of the world, Just rollin' along, just rollin' along; And I'm quittin' the blues of the world, Just singin' a song, just singin' a song. Glory, hallelujah! I've just phoned the parson, "Hey par, get ready to call!" Just like little Humpty Dumpty, I'm goin' a fall, Because I'm sittin', sittin, on top of the world, Rollin' along, I'm rollin' along.
