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 (Orchestral Break) 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 (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - February 2005)
