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
