Song title: Ain't got you


Ain't got you

I got a fortune of heaven in diamonds and gold
I got all the bonds baby that the bank could hold
I got houses ‘cross the country honey end to end
And everybody buddy wants to be my friend
Well I got all the riches honey any man every knew
But the only thing I ain’t got honey I ain’t got you

I got a house full of Rembrandt and priceless art
And all the little girls they wanna tear me apart
When I walk down the street people stop and stare
Well you think I might be thrilled but baby I don’t care
Cause I got more good luck honey than old King Farouk
But the only thing I ain’t got baby I ain’t got you

I got a big diamond watch sittin’ on my wrist
I try to tempt you baby but you just resist
I made a deal with the devil babe I won’t deny
Until I got you in my arms I can’t be satisfied

I got a pound of caviar sitting home on ice
I got a fancy foreign car that rides like paradise
I got a hundred pretty women knockin’ down my door
And folks wanna kiss me I ain’t even seen before
I been around the world and all across the seven seas
Been paid a king’s ransom for doin’ what comes naturally
But I’m still the biggest fool honey this world ever knew
‘Cause the only thing I ain’t got baby I ain’t got you.

Notes: In the TOL tour, often played mixed with She's the one.
