How many old cliches can one pack in a single song?

Count Your Blessings
Pat Green

1
Mama always said stand up to the truth
There ain't no such thing as the fountain of youth
Two wrongs never made it right
Grass ain't always greener on the other side
Better save your money for a rainy day
Count your blessings come as they may.
2
Only Will Rogers never met a man he didn't like
Always throw the first punch when it comes to a fight
It ain't over till it's over and the fat lady sings
Only quitters and losers throw the towel in the ring
Well I hope you ain't working on a rainy day
Count your blessings come as they may.
3
It's a hush my mouth land sakes alive
I don't believe that fishermen smell the same when they die
Never put the cart before the horse
Unless he knows how to push it of course
Seems like I'm always dreaming on a rainy day
Count your blessings come as they may.
4
And it was grandpa who said son you can't buy love
You can jump in with both feet, but don't jump the gun
Stay out of trouble count your lucky stars
Never get drunk in two states inside the same day
Seems like I'm always drinking on a rainy day.

Wal, I swan, if you don't get it right the first time, try, try again.
Sorry, I took a shortened version, here is the whole thing. Lyrics vary from site to site- improvements welcome. A fun song.

My mama always said, "Stand up to the truth.
There ain't no such thing as the fountain of youth.
Two wrongs never made it a right.
The grass ain't always greener on the other side.
Better save your money for a rainy day.
Count your blessings, come as they may.

Only Will Rogers never met a man he didn't like.
Always throw the first punch when it comes to a fight.
It ain't over till it's over and the fat lady sings.
Only quitters and losers throw the towel in the ring.
Well, I hope ya ain't workin' on a rainy day.
Count your blessings, come as they may.
3
And it's a "Hush my mouth, landsakes alive.
I don't believe that fishermen smell the same when they die.
Never put your cart before the horse,
Unless it knows how to push it of course.
Seems like I'm always dreamin' on a rainy day.
Count your blessings, come as they may.

And it was grandpa who said, "Son, you can't buy love.
You can jump in with both feet, but don't jump the gun.
Stay outta trouble. Count your lucky stars.
Never get drunk in two states inside the same day.
Seems like I'm always drinkin' on a rainy *day. (*bar?)
Count your blessings, come as they may.
5
It was grandma who said, "Silence is golden.
You only answer to one, he's the almighty beholder.
A bird in the hand is better than two in the nest.
Don't ya count your chickens before they hatch.
Always save a lover for a rainy day.
Count your blessings, come as they may.
6
Talk bein' cheap, well I took their advice
And the older I get the more I know they were right.
What works for me may not work for you.
Everything I said was the God dang truth.
Well, I hope you ain't lonely on a rainy day.
Count your blessings, come as they may.

And they're etched in my mind,
I could never forget 'em.
See, it ain't what ya said, just how ya said it.
