Life Has Its Little Ups And Downs

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
I don’t know how to tell her
I didn’t get that raise and pay today

June Carter: That’s alright, John.

Johnny:
Cause I know how much she wanted
That dress in Baker’s window
And it breaks my heart to tell her
She’ll have to wait

Both: And cancel all the plans we made to celebrate
Johnny: But I just know that she can take it with a smile and not a frown
Cause she knows
Both: Life has its little ups and downs
Like ponies on a merry-go-round
And no one grabs a brass ring every time
Johnny: But she don’t mind
June: I don’t mind
Johnny: She wears a gold ring on her finger
And it’s
Both: mine

Johnny: Those new house plans we’ve had so long
I guess will gather dust another year
June: Mmm-mmh
And the daffodils are blooming that she planted way last fall upon the hill
Both: And over by the gate

Johnny: God knows I hate to say again
Both: We’ll have to wait
Johnny: But I just know that she can take it with a smile and not a frown
Cause she knows
Both: Life has its little ups and downs
Like ponies on a merry-go-round
No one grabs a brass ring every time
Johnny: But she don’t mind
June: No, I don’t mind
Johnny: She wears a gold ring on her finger
And it’s mine
Johnny: She wears a (June: gold ring) on her finger
Johnny: And it’s Both: mine
