I'd Rather Be A Beggar With You

(Oliver Perry /Irv.King / Jas.Campbell / Reg.Connelly)

Al Bowlly acc. by orchestra

I don't envy a millionare
Wealth bring nothing but loads of cares
I'm contented to be in love with you

Happiness isn't hard to find
With somebody who's sweet and kind
I'd be happy in any place with you

With you I know, I'd be so content
Although I had an even ascent
I'd rather be a beggar with you
Than a king with somebody else

Though I were rich, how blue I would be
Without you there to fuss over me
I'd rather be a beggar with you
Than a king with somebody else

Life isn't ever a joke dear
Two hearts that are empty and bare
I could be happy though broke dear
With you beside me to care

A humble nest, a shack in the lane
With you would be a castle in Spain
I'd rather be a beggar with you
Than a king with somebody else
