I'm having myself a time
I mean I'm having what I want
Wanting what I have
Doing what I like
And liking what I do
And I'm having myself a time

I never could save a dime
And so I'm living like a lord
Acting like, a loon
Lying in the sun
And sighing in the moon
And I'm having myself a lime

When I hum songs
They're all dumb songs
Without reason nor rhyme
But I'm certainly in my prime
I friend I'm happy as a bird, flying up above
Walk a little love and get a little love
And I'm having myself a time

But I'm certainly in my prime
I mean I'm happy as a bird, flying up above
Walk a little love and get a little love
And I'm having myself a time
