Perry Como Sings Hits from Broadway Shows ~ 1956
 
Marrying For Love
 
It's an old-fashioned idea, 
marryin' for love!
and that old-fashioned idea's
what I'm thinkin' of!
 
Where there's love, poets have said,
two can live as one! 
That's an old-fashioned idea,
but it's bein' done! 
 
If she must have gold, let it be in her hair, 
rubes, let 'em be in her lips,
diamonds, let 'em shine in her eyes! 
 
Just an old-fashioned romance, 
with the moon above, 
a romance, one that will end, 
marryin' for love 
that's the kind of love 
that I'm thinking of!
