Sayings by Irving Berlin

#1 After You Get What You Want, You Don’t Want It

1. After you get what you want, you don’t want it

#2 I Got The Sun In The Morning

2. Got no checkbook got no bank
Still I’d like to express my thanks
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

#3 It’s A Lovely Day Today

3. It’s a lovely day today
So whatever you’ve got to do
You’ve got a lovely day to do it in, that’s true

And I hope whatever you’ve got to do
Is something that can be done by two
For I’d really like to stay

It’s a lovely day today
And whatever you’ve got to do
I’d be so happy to be doing it with you

But if you’ve got something that must be done
And it can only be done by one
There is nothing more to say
Except it’s a lovely day for saying
It’s a lovely day

#4 When I Leave The World Behind, Cheek To Cheek

4. When I must say good-bye

I’ll leave the sunshine to the flowers
I’ll leave the springtime to the trees

And to the old folks, I’ll leave the mem’ries
Of a baby upon their knees

I’ll leave the night time to the dreamers
I’ll leave the songbirds to the blind

I’ll leave the moon above
To those in love
When I leave the world behind

4. The toughest thing about success is that you’ve got to keep on being a success.

#5 Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep), 1954, White Christmas

5. When I’m worried and I can’t sleep
I count my blessings instead of sheep
And I fall asleep
Counting my blessings

When my bankroll is getting small
I think of when I had none at all
And I fall asleep
Counting my blessings
I think about a nursery and I picture curly heads
And one by one I count them as they slumber in their beds

If you’re worried and you can’t sleep
Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you’ll fall asleep
Counting your blessings
