lyrics

there are many things
like a diamond ring
that mean nothing to you at all

i could buy you a boat
you'd want it to sink in a moat
laugh while the castle walls cave-in

it's not the things you want
it's the things you don't
that's why i love you

piles of dollar bills
bunch of bottles of doctor pills
a new car wrapped up in a bow

a big house invokes a yawn
break plates we can't eat on
40 of us could live there anyway

it's not the things you want
it's the things you don't
that's why i love you
