"The Greatest Love" as written by and Allen Toussaint /....
You are the love
buys you pretty clothes
and all the fine things
that heaven only knows
that I wish I could

You are the love
dances and sings
swings and says all witty
little things that a playboy should

mmm he's got money he's got charm
and when you're walking arm in arm
it hurts me so, but I just want you to know

(chorus x 1)
it's not easy
heaven knows I try to wish
the best to you and push myself aside
well it takes the greatest love
that you'll ever find to let you walk away leaving me behind
and that's the greatest love... yes it is

you are the love
he's got the power to entertain you each and every hour of the day and night

you are the love
he's got the ways, the means
to show you all the wild scenes
where the lights are bright

ohh love should never be posessed
so don't you cry and be depressed
you're free to go
but I just want you to know

(chorus x 1)
