Ethel Waters – Love Is The Thing lyrics
My darling all around us people clamour
They're striving for the thing they'll never own
The only thing that hasn't lost its glamour
Is love, and love alone

What does it matter if we're rich or we're poor
Fortune and fame they never endure
For love is the thing, love is the thing

What good is money if your heart isn't light
And here in your arms I'm wealthy tonight
When youth has its fling, love is the thing

While others fight for power
We can walk among the flowers
Knowing that the best thing in life
Is the thing that is free
Love for you and me

And even though our castles crumble and fall
We have the right to laugh at them all
For love is still king, love is the thing

While others fight for power
We can walk among the flowers
Knowing that the best thing in life
Is the thing that is free
Love for you and me

And even though our castles crumble and fall
We have the right to laugh at them all
For love is still king, love is the thing
