Some people live for the fortune Some people live just for the fame Some people live for the power, yeah Some people live just to play the game Some people think that the physical things Define what's within. And I've been there before I know that life's a bore So full of the superficial. Some people want it all But I don't want nothing at all If it ain't you, baby If I ain't got you, baby. Some people want diamond rings Some just want everything But everything means nothing If I ain't got you, yeah. Some people search for a fountain That promises forever young Some people need three dozen roses And that's the only way to prove you love him. Hand me the world on a silver platter And what good would it be?
