(vocal: Ben Bernie) - 1933 Bob Causer & His Cornellians (vocal: Elmer Feldkamp) - 1933 Carroll Gibbons & His Boyfriends (vocal: Harry Bentley) - 1933 Jack Jackson & His Orch. - 1933 Syd Baxter & His Orch. - 1933 Roy Abbot & His Orch. - 1933 As recorded by PHIL HARRIS: Now, I've got the swellest proposition And I keep wishin' that you'd agree 'Cause, honey, in my life there's only one ambition It's concerning you and concerning me Now, I haven't got a nickel And you haven't got a dime But I'm not so very busy, dear And you've got lots of time Hi-ho-lack-a-day Now, what've we got to lose Now, I'm very fond of walking 'Cause I haven't any car And the church around the corner, dear Is not so very far Hi-ho-lack-a-day What've we got to lose Hi-diddle-diddle, that’s a song That we can sing the whole day long Hi-ho, why if anything goes wrong We’ll just sing our worries away Now, we won't let little troubles Upset our sweet romance 'Cause history, dear, will tell ya That Columbus took a chance Hi-ho-lack-a-day What've we got to lose (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2016) ******************** ALTERNATE VERSION: I haven’t got a penny You’re just as broke as me I’m not so very busy And you’re absolutely free Hi-ho-lack-a-day What have we got to lose? You’re very fond of walking I haven’t any car The church around the corner, dear Is not so very far Hi-ho-lack-a-day What have we got to lose? Hi-diddle-diddle, that’s a song That we can sing the whole day long Hi-ho, if anything goes wrong We’ll sing our worries away And somewhere in the country We’ll find a little nest We’ll pay a porter’s rent And they can sue us for the rest Hi-ho-lack-a-day What have we got to lose?
