Empty pockets but a heart full of love
a heart full of love for you
Cash? Not any, not one red penny
but kisses many, for you!
Empty pockets but a heart beating fast
as true as the stars above
Please say that you'll get by with just a guy
with empty pockets filled with love!
You can't eat love, you can't drink love
you can't wear love, like you would a gown
I trust love but "just" love won't pay for caviar
won't buy that motor car, or a house in town!
You can't spend love, you can't lend love
you must end love when the chips are down!
Love flies out the window when there's nothin' to eat
nothin' to drink, nothin' to wear but a frown
an' the chips are down!
