Don't need no palace paved with gold
Don't need more cash than banks can hold
When I get to feelin', a feelin'
For something there ain't too much of
My sweet lil' darlin' gives me her love

Don't catch me chasin' 'round at night
I'm not impressed by glamor sights
Lil' darlin' may not be as pretty
As some other gals you can see
But my lil darlin' only loves me
