Rags To Riches Lyrics

Artist: Tony Bennett
Album: Rags To Riches

Rags To Riches
Tony Bennett
Written by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross

Charted at # 1 in 1953
Later charted by Sunny and the Sunliners at # 45 in 1963
Later charted by Elvis Presley at # 33 in 1971


I know I'd go from rags to riches
If you would only say you care
And though my pocket may be empty
I'd be a millionaire

My clothes may still be torn and tattered
But in my heart I'd be a king
Your love is all that ever mattered
It's everything

So open your arms and you'll open the door
To ev'ry treasure that I'm hopin' for
Hold me and kiss me and tell me you're mine ever more

Must I forever be a beggar
Whose golden dreams will not come true?
Or will I go from rags to riches?
My fate is up to you



Must I forever be a beggar
Whose golden dreams will not come true?
Or will I go from rags to riches?
My fate is up to you

by Rio on 12/16/2011 1:47pm
Gabby Hayes sang something with a similar melody in a John Wayne western that predated 1953. The first two lines are: "Oh, if John D. Rockefeller was my valet [he pronounced the T]/And I had my vittles served by the King..." Time for Tony to 'fess up.

Great passion and delivery coupled with simple but very meaningful lyrics. Always knew the song from the movie but hearing the entire track it then became one of my favorite songs. Let's give it up to Ol Tony and all the great Italian singers.
