A solid gold manchion, an airplane or two.
This world would be yours to have and to hold,
If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold.
If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold,
I'd have all the treasures a pocket could hold.
I'd be, oh, so wealthy, with pleasures untold,
If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold
2. The tears that have fallen won't buy you a thing.
The heartaches you've caused me won't pay for a ring.
The love that I wanted, would not have grown cold,
If teardrops were pennies, and heartaches were gold.
