"IN A SHANTY IN OLD SHANTY TOWN"
by: fats domino
written by: Schuster, Little & Young

I'm up in the world,
But I'd give the world
to be where I used to be,
A heavenly nest,
Where I rest the best,
Means more than the world to me.

It's only a shanty
In old Shanty Town
The roof is so slanty
it touches the ground.
But my tumbled down shack
by an old railroad track,
Like a millionaire's mansion
is calling me back.

I'd give up a palace
if I were a king.
It's more than a palace,
it's my everything.
There's a queen waiting there
with a silvery crown
In a shanty in old Shanty Town.
