Once upon a time I had plenty of nothingWhich was fine with meBecause I had rhythm, music, loveThe sun, the stars and the moon aboveHad the clear blue sky and the deep blue seaThat was when the best things in life were free
Then time went by and now I got plenty of plentyWhich is fine with me'Cause I still got love, I still got rhythmBut look at what I got to go with 'em"Who could ask for anything more?", I hear you queryWho would ask for anything more? Well, let me tell you, dearie
Got my diamonds, got my yacht, got a guy I adoreI'm so happy with what I got, I want more!
Count your blessings, one, two, threeI just hate keeping scoreAny number is fine with meAs long as it's moreAs long as it's more!
I'm no mathematician, all I know is additionI find counting a boreKeep the number mounting, your accountant does the counting(More! More!)
I got rhythm, music too, just as much as beforeGot my guy and my sky of blueNow, however, I own the viewMore is better than nothing, trueBut nothing's better than more, more, moreNothing's better than more
One is fun, why not two?And if you like two, you might as well have fourAnd if you like four, why not a fewWhy not a slew(More! More!)
If you've got a little, why not a lot?Add and bit and it'll get to be an oodlesEvery jot and tittle adds to the potSoon you've got the kit as well as the caboodle(More! More!)
Never say when, never stop at plentyIf it's gonna rain, let it pourHappy with ten, happier with twentyIf you like a penny, wouldn't you like many much more?
Or does that sound too greedy?That's not greed, no, indeedyThat's just stocking the storeGotta fill your cupboard, remember Mother Hubbard[More! More!]
Each possession you possessHelps your spirits to soarThat's what's soothing about excessNever settle for something lessSomething's better than nothing, yes!But nothing's better than more, more more(Except all, all, all)Except all, all, allExcept once you have it all [have it all]You may find all else above [find all else above]That though things are blissThere's one thing you miss, and that'sMore! More!More! More! More! More!
