If I had a dollar
For every time
You broke my heart,
Messed up my mind

Well I'd be the richest man
I'd be the richest man
...in the world

If bad times paid interest
I'd have you to thank
I'd be driving a new car,
Have money in the bank

I'd be the richest man
I'd be the richest man
...in the world

Baby..money can't buy love
The kind I dream of is so hard to find
For a good womans touch in the morning when I rise
Well baby I'd give up every single dime

Money can't buy love
The kind I dream of is so hard to find
For a good woman's touch in the mrning when I rise
Baby I'd give up every single dime

If teardrops were diamonds from the African mines
If heartaches were silver
My whole life would shine
And I'd be the richest man
I'd be the richest man
...in the world

Baby.
