I'd Rather Be A Beggar With You

I'd Rather Be A Beggar With You

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


Roy Fox and his Band

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
