As recorded by 'WHISPERING' JACK SMITH: There are so many kinds of riches And only one of them is gold The wealth you miss, remember this Worthwhile things cannot be bought or sold The Moon belongs to ev'ryone The best things in life are free The stars belong to ev'ryone They gleam there for you and me The flowers in spring The robins that sing The sunbeams that shine They're yours, they're mine And love can come to ev'ryone The best things in life are free The world has many sorts of treasures And most of them you bargain for But after all, such joys so small Treasures real you always have in store The Moon belongs to ev'ryone The best things in life are free The stars belong to ev'ryone They gleam there for you and me The flowers in spring The robins that sing The sunbeams that shine They're yours, they're mine And love can come to ev'ryone The best things in life are free ******************** As recorded by JO STAFFORD: The stars in the sky The Moon on high They're great for you and me Because they're free The Moon belongs to ev'ryone The best things in life are free The stars belong to ev'ryone They gleam there for you and me The flowers in spring The robins that sing The sunbeams that shine They're yours, they're mine Love can come to ev'ryone The best things in life are free (Orchestral Break) The flowers in spring The robins that sing The sunbeams that shine Baby, they're yours and mine And love can come to ev'ryone The best things in life are free The stars in the sky The Moon on high They're great because they're free (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2012)
