"How much do I owe you?" said the husband to his wife,
"For standing beside me through the hard years of my life.
"Shall I bring you diamonds, shall I buy you furs? 
"Say the word and it's yours. 

And his wife said: "I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
"No, I won't take less than your love. 
"All the riches of the world could never be enough,
"And I won't take less than your love."

"How much do I owe you?" to the mother said the son.
"For all that you have taught me in the days that I was young.
"Shall I bring expensive blankets to cast upon your bed?
"And a pillow for to rest your weary head." 

And the mother said: "I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
"No, I won't take less than your love. 
"All the comforts of the world could never be enough,
"And I won't take less than your love." 

"How much do I owe you?" said the man to his Lord.
"For giving me this day and every day that's gone before.
"Shall I build a temple, shall I make a sacrifice?
"Tell me Lord and I will pay the price."

And the Lord said: "I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
"No, I won't take less than your love. 
"All the treasures of the world could never be enough,
"And I won't take less than your love." 

"I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
"No, I won't take less than your love. 
"All the treasures of the world could never be enough,
"And I won't take less than your love." 

"No, I won't take less than your love."
