EMPTY POCKETS FILLED WITH LOVE from 1962 New York play "Mr President" (Irving Berlin 1962) as recorded by Perry Como & The Ray Charles Singers with Mitchell Ayres & his Orchestra October 2nd 1962 New York [pc] Empty pockets but a heart full of love, A heart full of love for you. Cash? Not any, Not one red penny, But kisses, many, for you! Empty pockets but a heart beating fast, As true as the stars above. Please say that you'll get by With just a guy With empty pockets filled with love! [rcs] You can't eat love, You can't drink love, You can't wear love Like you would a gown. I trust love, but just love Won't pay for caviar, Won't buy that motor car, Or a house in town! You can't spend love, You can't lend love, You must end love When the chips are down! Love flies out the window When there's nothin' to eat, Nothin' to drink, Nothin' to wear but a frown, And the chips are down! (verses 1 and 2 repeated concurrently with verses 3 and 4) (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2017)
