  • (you need more, you need more, you need more,
    You need more,you need more,you need more,
    You need more,you need more,you need more)

    Boy it's tough getting on in the world
    When the sun doesn't shine and a boy needs a girl
    It's about getting out of a rut, you need luck
    And your stuck and don't know how (oh)

    (don't have to be) A big bucks Hollywood star
    (don't have to drive)A super car to get far
    (don't have to live)A life of power and wealth
    (don't have to be) beautiful but it helps
    (don't have to buy)A house in Beverly hills
    (don't have to have)your daddy paying the bills
    (don't have to live)A life of power and wealth
    (don't have to be) beautiful but it helps

    You need more than a big blank check to be a lover,or
    A gulf stream jet to fly you door to door
    Somewhere chic on another shore
    You need more you need more you need more you need more you need more you need more
    You need love you need love you need love
    Too much of anything is never enough
    Too much of everything is never enough

    Boy it's tough getting on in the world
    When the sun doesn't shine and a boy needs a girl
    It's about getting out of a rut, you need luck
    And your stuck and don't know how (oh)

    (don't have to be) A big bucks Hollywood star
    (don't have to drive)A super car to get far
    (don't have to wear)A smile much colder than ice
    (don't have to be beautiful but it's nice

    You need more than Gerhard Richter hangin' on your wall
    A chauffeur-driven limousine on call
    To drive your wife and lover to a white tie ball

    (you need more, you need more, you need more,
    You need more,you need more,you need more) you need love
    I believe that we can achieve the love that we need
    I believe, call me naive
    Love is for free

    (don't have to be) A big bucks Hollywood star
    (don't have to drive)A super car to get far
    (don't have to live)A life of power and wealth
    (don't have to be) beautiful but it helps
    Beautiful that it helps
    Beautiful that it helps
