I WOULDN'T TAKE A MILLION From the film "Young People" (1940) (Music: Harry Warren / Lyrics: Mack Gordon) Shirley Temple & Jack Oakie (Film Soundtrack) - 1940 Tommy Dorsey & His Orch. (vocal: Connie Haines) - 1940 Glenn Miller & His Orch. (vocal: Ray Bberle) - 1940 As recorded by Connie Haines with Tommy Dorsey & His Orch., Aug 29th 1940, New York: I wouldn't take a million For a boy like you! I wouldn't take a million For the things you do! If they offered me a mansion In the finest part of town, If you're not in that mansion, Then I would turn it down! I wouldn't take a million For the twinkle in your eye! I'd rather win a smile from you Than win the Nobel Prize! If I were just a pauper And I didn't have a sou, I still would have a million If I just had you! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - June 2012) ******************** As performed in the 1940 film "Young People" by Shirley Temple and Jack Oakie: JACK OAKIE: I don`t care for treasures I don`t ask for fame Or the fortunes others may possess You`re my only treasure You`re my claim to fame My career is here in your caress I wouldn`t take a million for a girl like you I wouldn`t take a million for the things you do If they offered me a mansion in the finest part of town If you`re not in that mansion, then I would turn it down I wouldn`t take a million for the twinkle in your eyes I`d rather win a smile from you, than win the Nobel Prize If I were just a pauper and I didn`t have a sou I still would have a million if I just had you SHIRLEY TEMPLE: I wouldn`t take a million for a Mom and Dad like you I wouldn`t take a million for the little things you do If they offered me a mansion in the finest part of town If you`re not in that mansion, then I would turn it down I wouldn`t take a million for the moments we have known I`d rather sit upon your knee, than on a royal throne If I could rub Aladdin`s lamp to make a wish come true I`d wish that ev`ry kid could have a Mom and Dad like you
