A song about not being rich but being big at heart

Recommended Posts

Oh, I luv dat 1...

I, I who have nothing

I, I who have no one

Adore you, and want you so

I'm just a no one,

With nothing to give you but Oh

I Love You...

:grin: :grin:

Danny's Song by Loggins and Messina

"Even though we ain't got money

I'm so in love with you, Honey"

Sweet Life by Paul Davis

"We always dreamed we'd live in a castle

We're in the same old shack"

"We always dreamed we'd make a lot of money

But I don't mind being poor

'Cause when you make love to me, Honey

Who could ask for any more?"

First song I thought of was Danny's Song!...

How about

I Got You Babe ~ Sonny & Cher

"They say our love won't pay the rent,

Before it's earned our money's all been spent

I guess that's so, we don't have a pot

But at least I'm sure of all the things we got"

Patches ~ Clarence Carter

"I could still hear papa when he'd say

Patches, I'm depending on you son

I tried to do my best It's up to you to do the rest".

Your Song

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside

I'm not one of those who can easily hide

I don't have much money but boy if I did

I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no

Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show

I know it's not much but it's the best I can do

My gift is my song and this one's for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song

It may be quite simple but now that it's done

I hope you don't mind

I hope you don't mind that I put down in words

How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss

Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross

But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song

It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do

You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue

Anyway the thing is what I really mean

Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

Sort of kind of in the neighborhood of the theme...

If I Ain't Got You

Alicia Keys

:bow: :bow: :bow:

Some people live for the fortune

Some people live just for the fame

Some people live for the power, yeah

Some people live just to play the game

Some people think that the physical things

Define what's within

And I've been there before

But that life's a bore

So full of the superficial

[Chorus:]

Some people want it all

But I don't want nothing at all

If it ain't you baby

If I ain't got you baby

Some people want diamond rings

Some just want everything

But everything means nothing

If I ain't got you, Yeah

Some people search for a fountain

That promises forever young

Some people need three dozen roses

And that's the only way to prove you love them

Hand me the world on a silver platter

And what good would it be

With no one to share

With no one who truly cares for me

[Chorus:]

Some people want it all

But I don't want nothing at all

If it ain't you baby

If I ain't got you baby

Some people want diamond rings

Some just want everything

But everything means nothing

If I ain't got you, you, you

Some people want it all

But I don't want nothing at all

If it ain't you baby

If I ain't got you baby

Some people want diamond rings

Some just want everything

But everything means nothing

If I ain't got you, yeah

[Outro:]

If I ain't got you with me baby

So nothing in this whole wide world don't mean a thing

If I ain't got you with me baby

Two Sisters by The Kinks

Sybilla looked into her mirror

Priscilla looked into the washing machine

And the drudgery of being wed

She was so jealous of her sister

And her liberty, and her smart young friends

She was so jealous of her sister

Sybilla looked into the wardrobe

Priscilla looked into the frying pan

And the bacon and eggs

And the breakfast is served

She was so jealous of her sister

And her way of life, and her luxury flat

She was so jealous of her sister

She'd throw away her dirty dishes just to be free again

Her women's weekly magazines just to be free again

And put the children in the nursery just to be free again

Priscilla saw her little children

And then decided she was better off

Than the wayward lass that her sister had been

No longer jealous of her sister

So she ran 'round the house with her curlers on

No longer jealous of her sister

Draggin' the Line by Tommy James

Makin' a living the old hard way

Takin' and giving by day by day

I dig snow and rain and bright sunshine

Draggin' the line (draggin' the line)

My dog Sam eats purple flowers

We ain't got much but what we got's ours

We dig snow and rain and bright sunshine

Draggin' the line (draggin' the line)

Draggin' the line (draggin' the line)

I feel fine I'm talkin' bout peace of mind

I'm gonna take my time I'm gettin' the good sign

Draggin' the line (draggin' the line)

Draggin' the line (draggin' the line)

Loving the free and feelin' spirit

Of huggin' a tree when you get near it

Diggin' the snow and rain and bright sunshine

"Situations Vacant" - by The Kinks

"Suzy and Johnny were happy

Earned enough to pay the rent

But Johnny's mother-in-law had too much ambition

And this made Johnny very upset

So to keep his little mama satisfied

He went and bought the weekly classified

All for peace and quiet's sake

Johnny gave up his position

Just to please his mother-in-law

So he left the job where he'd been all his life

He left and turned his back on door[?]

Now he's looking at the situations vacant

Situations vacant

Just to keep his little mama satisfied

He went and bought the weekly classified

All for peace and quiet's sake

Then he had to leave the apartment

And sought a less plush residence

And poor Suzy and Johnny had to skimp and save

Just to help to pay the weekly rent

So to keep his little mama satisfied

He went and bought the weekly classified

All for peace and quiet's sake

Johnny's got no money

Got no where to go

Johnny's in a great big hole

Suzy's separated, living with her ma

Now little mama's satisfied"

For me one of the greatest love songs of all is "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel off of the So album. The song really speaks to the fact that life isn't perfect much of the time and neither is love, but, instead, it tells how the bad or hard times just makes real love stronger. For me it is far more a true song than the many gooey love songs out there. Not that there's anything wrong with them, just that this particular song has a lot more meaning from me.
