Barbra Streisand I've Got The Nerve To Be In Love Lyrics

Last updated: 04/19/2011 11:00:00 AM

JACK:
Some folks say that love is a luxury
But I'm afraid I don't agree,
What's good enough for Woolworth heirs
And debutantes and millionaires,
And Kings and Queens
And people such as
Edward Windsor and his Duchess
Is good enough for me.

I buy at my things at Woolworths,
No charge account at Saxes,
I never have to juggle
Reports of income taxes.
That may be so by why
Should I deny myself a try at love?

Don't look for me on Broadway
Dressed up in tails and high hats,
The check girls at Morocco
Would turn away at my hat.
That may be so but still
I've got a right to have a thrill of love.

No, I don't R.S.V.P.
When high society invites me to a dance.
Working in a shop all day
Don't give much time to play
With debutantes, fat chance.

I haven't got an income
That G-Men care to question,
When market prices tumble
I don't get indigestion.
That may be true of me but still
I've got the nerve to be in love with you.

ROSE MARY:
I haven't got a chauffeur,
No limousine to roam in,
And Miss Elizabeth Arden
Don't work on my abdomen.
That may be so by why
Should I deny myself a try at love?

I haven't got a wardrobe,
No gowns and rings that glisten,
No Penthouse on the river,
I've just a hall to kiss in.
That may be so but still
I've got the crust
To want the thrill of love.

I prefer to keep away from Newport
And the gay society affairs,
Sewing underwear all day
Don't give much time to play
With millionaires, who cares?

No Mrs. Scaparelli
Designs the clothes I wear,
I fight for them in mark downs
At Klein's on Union Square,
That may be true of me but still
I've got the nerve to be in love with you.

I've got no evening gowns that swish.

JACK:
I've got no soup and fish
Or great big yacht.

ROSE MARY:
No Prince ever was my beau.

JACK:
A cutey from a show
I haven't got, so what?

ROSE MARY:
So what?

ROSE MARY & JACK:
A reckon I'm expanding
Won't need investigation,
We know that we're included
In one third of a nation.
It's very plain to see but still
I've got the nerve to be in love with you.
