What does it matther if we're rich Or we are poor? Fortune and fame they never endure. Oh love is the thing, love is the thing! What good is money if your heart is all right? Here in your arms I'm wealthy tonight For youth has its flame. Love is the thing! While others fight for power We can walk among the flowers Knowing that the best thing in life Is a thing that is free Love for you and me And even though our castles crumb and fall We have the right to laugh at them all For love is still keen. Love is the thing! More on Genius.
