I've traveled to the ends of the rainbow
And I've looked for that old pot of gold
But I didn't realize until I looked into your eyes
That I had a greater wealth than ever told.

Chorus:
Into each life there's many kinds of riches
There's diamonds, there's pearls and there's gold
But I'd be the richest man in this wonderful land
If I had you to have and to hold.

A true love is the greatest of all riches
A true love will never grow cold
A real love is all that really matters
For it's worth more than diamonds, pearls and gold.

Chorus:
Into each life there's many kinds of riches
There's diamonds, there's pearls and there's gold
But I'd be the richest man in this wonderful land
If I had you to have and to hold.

I'd be the richest man in this wonderful land
If I had you to have and to hold...
