Love is The Thing - Tony Bennett

My darling, all around us people clamor
They're striving for the things 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
Oh, love is the thing
Love is the thing

What good is money is your heart isn't light?
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 things in life
Is a thing that's 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 the thing
Love is still king
