    (Ted Daffan - Herman Shoss)

    Sometimes I get so lonely and I don't know what to do
    Though there's people all around me still I feel so sad and blue
    Then I heard your happy laughter as though an angel were to sing
    And I knew that I was bankrupt and you were wealthy as a king.

    My heart's so cold and lonely that I live in poverty
    Your heart's so warm and lovin' you are richer more than me
    Won't you share your precious laughter you're so rich in happiness
    Lend your love to one who needs it and your share will not grow less.

    --- Instrumental ---

    A wealth you have to offer can't be bought with wordly gold
    The love that gold can purchase is kinda bit and oh so cold
    I am just a beggar pleading for a smile from you
    Lend your love to one who needs it, won't you make me wealthy too?...
