fortunes lyrics – george huff

some people live for money and fame
some people live for playin’ the game
the best wine and fine cigars
private jets and fancy cars, oh yeah

and though it looks real good to me
is it true reality
dollars poppin’ everywhere
perfect skin and perfect hair, oh yeah

take away the sparkle, glitter of the diamond ring
i’d give up all my fortunes for these simple things
to fill a heart with laughter that joy alone can bring
just let me love you, that’s enough for me
oh, that’s enough for me, yeah

when will we ever realize
there’s a world that cries?
you’ve got to look outside yourself
try to help somebody else, oh yeah

take away the sparkle, glitter of the diamond ring
i’d give up all my fortunes for these simple things
to fill a heart with laughter that joy alone can bring
just let me love you, that’s enough for me

there’s more than castles by the sea
searchin’ for treasure, oh
there’s more than tryin’ to be
a king or queen forever

you’ve got to look outside yourself
try to help somebody else, oh yeah

take away the sparkle, glitter of the diamond ring
i’d give up all my fortunes for these simple things
to fill a heart with laughter that joy alone can bring
just let me love you, that’s enough for me, that’s enough for me
that’s enough for me, that’s enough for me, yeah
