Music by Kurt Weill
Words by Langston Hughes


I’ve looked in the windows at diamonds, / They’re beautiful, but they’re cold.
I’ve seen Broadway stars in fur coats / That cost a fortune, so I’m told

I guess I’d look nice in diamonds, / And sables might add to my charms,
But if someone I don’t care for would buy them, / I’d rather have two loving arms.

What good would the moon be, / Unless the right one shared it’s beams.
What good would dreams come true be, / If love wasn’t in those dreams.

And a primrose path, / What would be the fun
Of walking down a path like that / Without the right one?

What good would the night be / Without the right lips whispering low,
Kiss me oh darling kiss me, / While evening stars still glow.

No it won’t be a primrose path for me, / No it won’t be diamonds and gold,
But maybe it will be / Someone who loves me,
Someone who loves just me / To have and to hold.
