Empty pockets but a heart full of loveA heart full of love for youCash? not any, not one red pennyBut kisses many, for you!Empty pockets but a heart beating fastAs true as the stars abovePlease say that you’ll get by with just a guyWith empty pockets filled with love!You can’t eat love, you can’t drink loveYou can’t wear love, like you would a gownI trust love but just love won’t pay for caviarWon’t buy that motor car, or a house in town!You can’t spend love, you can’t lend loveYou must end love when the chips are down!Love flies out the window when there’s nothin’ to eatNothin’ to drink, nothin’ to wear but a frownAn’ the chips are down!< repeat verses 1 & 2 with 3 & 4 together >
