8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
The verse tempo is slower than the chorus.
There are so many kinds of riches, And only one of them is gold,
The wealth you miss, remember this, Worth while things cannot be bought or sold.
The moon belongs to ev'ryone,
The Best Things In Life Are Free,
The stars be long to ev'ryone
They gleam there for you and me.
The flowers in Spring, The robins that sing,
The sunbeams that shine, They're your's, They're mine!
And love can come to ev'ryone,
The Best Things In Life Are Free.
