Heptune presents:

On Top of the World, Alone

    (Whiting and Robin)

Transcribed from lyrics by Maurice Chevalier,
From Maurice Chevalier: Encore Maurice! Academy Sound and Vision, LDT, CD AJA 5016.

I'm so happy,
I feel so happy,
Because I'm lucky in love,
Love is all I care for
'Neath the skies above,
Some want money,
And some want glory,
And some think pleasure is best,
Just give me my sweetheart,
You can have the rest!

I don't want to be sitting on top of the world,
If I have to be sitting alone,
I would rather be humble with somebody there
Willing to share gladness or care.

I could never be happy if I were a king
Without her on my throne,
I don't want to be sitting on top of the world,
If I have to be sitting alone!

No. I don't want to be sitting on top of the world,
If I have to be sitting alone.
Hmmm, no; I would rather be humble with a nice little somebody there,
Who would be willing to share gladness or care!

Heh, really, I could never be happy, even if I were, if I were a king,
Without anybody sitting beside me on my throne,
No, no no no!
I don't want to be sitting on top of the world,
If I have to be sitting alone!
