And I've been there before I know that life's a bore So full of the superficial. Some people want it all But I don't want nothing at all If it ain't you, baby If I ain't got you, baby. Some people want diamond rings Some just want everything But everything means nothing If I ain't got you, yeah. Some people search for a fountain That promises forever young Some people need three dozen roses And that's the only way to prove you love him. Hand me the world on a silver platter And what good would it be? With no one to share With no one who truly cares for me. Some people want diamond rings Some just want everything But everything means nothing If I ain't got you, you, you. Some people want diamond rings Some just want everything But everything means nothing If I ain't got you, yeah If I ain't got you with me, baby Said nothing in this whole wide world don't mean a thing If I ain't got you with me, baby.
