About Help Yourself

"Help Yourself" is a song recorded by Welsh singer Tom Jones in 1968. The song is one of Jones' best known songs and reached number five in the UK Singles Chart in its original run. It topped the charts in both Ireland and Germany, and spent three weeks at the top spot in Australia. The American single reached Billboard peaks of number 35 pop and number three easy listening, and is still widely played on adult-standards radio. "Help Yourself" is a reworked English-language version of the Italian song "Gli Occhi Miei" ("My Eyes"), which was written by Carlo Donida with lyrics by Mogol and originally performed by both Dino (Eugenio Zambelli) and Wilma Goich at the 1968 Sanremo Music Festival. British author and songwriter Jack Fishman (a.k.a. Larry Khan) wrote the English lyrics, which bear no relation to the original Italian.

Love is like candy on a shelf
You want to taste and help yourself
The sweetest things are there for you 
Help yourself take a few
That's what I want you to do

We're always told repeatedly 
The very best in life is free
And if you want to prove it's true
Baby, I'm telling you this is what you should do

Just help yourself to my lips to my arms
Just say the word and they're yours
Just help yourself to the love in my heart
Your smile has opened up the door
The greatest wealth that exists in the world
Could never buy what I can give
Just help yourself to my lips to my arms
And then let's really start to live

My heart has love enough for two 
More than enough for me and you 
I'm rich with love, a millionaire
I've so much it's unfair
Why don't you take a share

Just help yourself to my lips to my arms
Just say the word and they're yours
Just help yourself to the love in my heart
Your smile has opened up the door
The greatest wealth that exists in the world
Could never buy what I can give
Just help yourself to my lips to my arms
And then let's really start to live
