(Richard Adler and Jerry Ross)

[Originally by Tony Bennett]

I know I'd go from rages to riches
If you would only say you care
And though my pocket may be empty
I'd be a millionaire

My clothes may still be torn and tattered
But in my heart I'd be a king
Your love is all that ever mattered
It's everything

So open your arms and you'll open the door
To every treasure I'm hoping for
Hold me and kiss me and tell me you're mine evermore

Must I forever be a begger
Whose golden dreams will not come true
Or will I go from rags to riches
My fate is up to you

[Musical Interlude]

Must I forever be a begger
Whose golden dreams will not come true
Or will I go from rags to riches
My fate is up to you
