You can take the house and everything in it
Keep the diamond ring 'cause that's how I meant it
 Sticks and stones are all they ever were to me
This material life with all it's value 
Don't mean a thing to me without you
The love that we once had is all I need

So take everything we have if it makes you happy 
But darling let me say before I leave 

 These sticks and stones ain't all that makes a home
They don't have arms to hold you when love goes wrong 
Now you say we are through  Those sticks and stones may break me
But the words you said just tore my heart in two

 Remember when we didn't have a dime between us
You took my hand and said we don't need much
Just as long as we're together we would be fine
Now we've acquired all I thought would please you
I gave everything you know that I could 
And still you're telling me you're not satisfied 

So take everything we have if it makes you happy 
But darling let me say before I leave 

 These sticks and stones ain't all that makes a home
They don't have arms to hold you when love goes wrong 
Now you say we are through  Those sticks and stones may break me
But the words you said just tore my heart in two

 These sticks and stones may break me
But the words you said just tore my heart in two
