[Tony Bennett]
Love is funny or it's sad
Or it's quiet or it's mad
It's a good thing or it's bad
But beautiful

Beautiful to take a chance
And if you fall, you fall
And I'm thinking
I wouldn't mind at all

[Lady Gaga]
Love is tearful or it's gay
It's a problem or it's play
It's a heartache either way
But beautiful

And I'm thinking if you were mine
I'd never let you go

And that would be
But beautiful, I know

[Tony Bennett]
And I'm thinking if you were mine
I'd never let you go
That would be
But beautiful

[Lady Gaga]
That would be
But beautiful

That would be
But beautiful, I know
