I Can't Give You Anything But Love

by Dean Martin

Gee, but it's tough to be broke, kid
It's not a joke, kid, it's a curse
My luck is changing, it's gotten from 
simply rotten to something worse
Who knows, some day I will win too 
I'll begin to reach my prime

Now though I see what our end is
All I can spend is just my time
I can't give you anything but love, baby
That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby

Dream awhile, scheme awhile
We're sure to find
Happiness and I guess
All those things you've always pined for

Gee I'd like to see you looking swell, baby
Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, baby
Till that lucky day you know darned well, baby
I can't give you anything but love

Rome wasn't built in a day, kid
You have to pay, kid, for what you get
But I am willing to wait, dear, 
Your little mate, dear, will not forget

You have a lifetime before you
I'll adore you, come what may
Please don't be blue for the present
When it's so pleasant to hear you say

I can't give you anything but love, baby
That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby
Dream awhile, scheme awhile
We're sure to find
Happiness and I guess
All those things you've always pined for

Gee I'd like to see you looking swell, baby
Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, baby
Till that lucky day you know darned well, baby
I can't give you anything but love
