If You Had All The World
And It's Gold
 
You can't buy the sunshine at twilight,
You can't buy the moonlight at dawn,
You can't buy your youth when you're growin' old, 
Nor your life when the heartbeat is gone . . .
 
You can't buy your way into heaven,
Tho' you may possess wealth untold,
An' just like your mother, 
You can't buy another, 
If you had all the world and it's gold . . .
 
You can't buy the sunshine at twilight,
You can't buy the moonlight at dawn,
You can't buy your youth when you're growin' old, 
Nor your life when the heartbeat is gone . . .
 
You can't buy your way into heaven,
Tho' you may possess wealth untold,
An' just like your mother, 
You can't buy another, 
If you had all the world and it's gold . . .
