Love Is the Thing

Hayton, Lennie And His Orchestra, Lena HorneBuy this song

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 

 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
