Verse:
There are so man -y kinds of rich -es, And on -ly one of them is gold,
The wealth you miss, re -mem -ber this, Worth while things can -not be bought or sold.
 
Chorus:
The moon be -longs to ev -'ry -one,
The Best Things In Life Are Free,
The stars be long to ev -'ry -one
They gleam there for you and me.
The flow -ers in Spring The rob -ins that sing,
The sun -beams that shine They're your's They're mine!
And love can come to ev -'ry -one,
The Best Things In Life Are Free.
