Song facts

From Wikipedia:

“The Glory Of Love” is a song written by Billy Hill, recorded by Benny Goodman in 1936, whose version was a number one pop hit. In 1951, R&B vocal group, The Five Keys, had their biggest R&B hit with their version of the song, hitting number one on the R&B chart for four non-consecutive weeks. Although The Five keys recording sold a reported million copies pressed recordings are very rare.

The song is also used as a theme song for the 1967 film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, and as the basis for a musical number in the 1981 film Pennies from Heaven.

The song was also referenced in the film “Orphan,” sung by Isabelle Fuhrman (Who played the main role of Esther/Leena Klammer) a few times during the film.

Lyrics

You've got to give a little, take a little
And let your poor heart break a little
That's the story of,
And that's the glory of love

Now laugh a little, cry a little
Until the clouds roll by a little
That's the story of,
That's the glory of love

As long as there's the two of us
We've got the world and all its charms
And when the world is through with us
We've got each other's arms

You've got to win a little, lose a little
Yes, and always have the blues a little
‘Cause that's the story of,
Yeah, that's the glory of love

~ Solo ~

As long as there's the two of us
We've got the world and all its charms
But when the world is through with us
We've got each other's arms

You've got to win a little, lose a little
And always have the blues a little
‘Cause that's the story of,
And that's the glory of love

‘Cause that's the story of,
And that's the glory of love
