"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."
