8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Gee, but it's tough to be broke, kid, it's not a joke, kid, it's a curse;
My luck is changing, it's gotten from simply rotten to something worse.
Who knows someday I will win too, I'll begin to reach my prime;
Now though I see what our end is all I can spend is just my time:
I Can't Give You Any Thing But Love, Baby.
That's the only thing I've plenty of, Baby.
Dream awhile, scheme awhile We're sure to find,
Happiness and I guess, all those things you've always pined for,
Gee I'd like to see you looking swell, Baby,
Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, Baby.
Till that lucky day, you know darn well, Baby.
I Can't Give You Any Thing But Love.
