What about the things you want?
What about the things you need,
Versus the things you don't have?
You should have
All of this world's desires.
All of this world's entire
Bounty and, beautiful love.

The stars and the moon,
And the birds soar real soon.
You should have
All the things that you need.
Give it everything.
All the world to bring.
If you believe in something,
You got to give it everything.

There's no time to waste.
There's no life to take.
Believers don't have to make haste.
Oh, no, but "I love you,"
Are more than just some sweet words.
"I love you,"
Are the sweetest words I ever heard.
One thing about I can't explain.
That you are the world to me.
When you're sure you love me,
Show you love tenderly.


Why should settle for second best,
When you haven't tasted all the rest?
Listen to me,
Listen to my request.
You should have all the things you want,
The things you need.
All of the things your mind can conceive.
