I Can't Give You Anything but Love,Baby

Lyrics:Dorothy Fields
Music:Jimmy McHugh

The song was publishe 1928.

The song was introduced by Adelaide Hall
at Les Ambassadeurs Club in New York in January 1928
in Lew Leslie's Blackbird Revue,
which opened on Broadway later that year as the highly successful
Blackbirds of 1928 (518 performances),
wherein it was performed by Adelaide Hall, Aida Ward,
and Willard McLean.

Gee, but it's tough to be broke, kid.
It's not a joke, kid--it's a curse.
My luck is changing--it's gotten
from simply rotten to something worse.
Who knows someday I will win too
I'll begin to reach my prime.
Now that I see what our end is
All can spend is just my time.

I can't give you anything but love, baby.
That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby.
Dream a while, scheme a while,
You're sure to find
Happiness and I guess,
All those things you've always pined for.

Gee, it's great to see you looking swell, baby.
Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, baby.
Till that lucky day you know darn well, baby,
I can't give you anything but love.
