The Best Things Money Can’t Buy

Listen to clip
Written by Doug Harvey and Nan O’Malley

As I sit here on my front porch swing
The roses are blooming and everything
Is alive with the joy of spring
This I know
The best things money can’t buy

No money can buy what a songbird sings
Or the blue in the sky when she’s on the wing
Or the laughter of children as they run and play
This I know
The best things money can’t buy

You can ride around in a limousine
Spend money like a cash machine
But a friend who is there when the world is cold
Is worth their weight in silver and gold

So the things that really count in the end
Have nothing to do with what you spend
Except time with the ones you love
This I know
The best things money can’t buy
