APED: "i ain't got you"

I got me a circus, I got me a zoo
I got me an elephant that plays kazoo
I got all the clowns, and the clown car too
but I ain't got nothin' cause I ain't got you.

I got me some money that I come into,
I got a bank account that lets interest accrue,
I got all the emeralds there is in Peru,
but I ain't got nothin' cause I ain't got you.

I got me some chicken that's cordon bleu
I got a wheel of cheese for cheese fondue
I got chocolate mousse and tira misu
but I ain't got nothin' cause I ain't got you

I got me a paradigm I overthrew
I got me some science and a big breakthrough
I got me a paper in peer review,
but I ain't got nothin' cause I ain't got you.

The Capulets got the Montagues,
A chimney sweep got a brush and the flue,
the Supreme Court got judicial review,
but I ain't got nothin' cause I ain't got you.

Hard to believe, but I swear that it's true,
I ain't got nothin'
(said I ain't got nothin')
I ain't got nothin cause I ain't got you.
