Verse:
Gee, but it's tough to be broke, kid, it's not a joke, kid, it's a curse;
My luck is chang -ing, it's got -ten from sim -ply rot -ten to some -thing worse.
Who knows some -day I will win too, I'll be -gin to reach my prime;
Now though I see what our end is all I can spend is just my time:
 
Chorus:
I Can't Give You An -y Thing But Love, Ba -by
That's the on -ly thing I've plen -ty of, Ba -by,
Dream a -while, scheme a -while We're sure to find,
Hap -pi -ness and I guess, all those things you've al -ways pined for,
Gee I'd like to see you look -ing swell, Ba -by,
Dia -mond brace -lets Wool -worth does -n't sell, Ba -by.
Till that luck -y day, you know darn well, Ba -by.
I Can't Give You An -y Thing But Love.
