LyricsEdit

[Lady Gaga]
I can't give you anything but love, baby
That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby
Dream a while, scheme a while, you're sure to find
Happiness and I guess all those things you've always pined for

Gee, I'd like to see you looking swell, Tony
With diamond watches, Tiffany's just don't sell, baby
Till that lucky day, you know darn well
Oh, I can't give you anything but love

[Tony Bennett]
I can't give you anything but love, lady
That's the only thing I've plenty of, lady
Dream a while, scheme a while, you're sure to find
Happiness and I guess all those things you've always pined for

How'd you like to see me looking swell, lady?
Diamond bracelets, Woolworth doesn't sell, Gaga

[Both]
Till that lucky day, you know darn well, baby

[Lady Gaga]
Oh, I can't give you anything

[Tony Bennett]
I don't want just anything

[Both]
Oh, I can't give you anything but love
