Lyrics:

I can see you now living like a queen
In a house that has everything, everything but love
Crystal chandeliers, chauffeured limousines
Yes, you'll really have everything, everything but love

1. I see diamonds, sables, sapphires and pearls
And as the picture clears
Poor little rich girl sitting all alone
Counting her treasures and tears
Better just a shack where two people care
Than a house that has everything, everything but love

1. (repeat)
Than a house that has everything, everything but love
