“These Things I Offer You For A Lifetime” (Bennie Benjamin / George Weiss / Morty Nevins).

A heart that longs for you,
Two arms that will be true,
These things I offer you for a lifetime!
Two lips with one desire,
To set your heart afire,
These things I offer you for a lifetime!

A cosy little nest,
Just meant for us to share,
Perhaps a tiny guest
Will be arriving there!
My life, my love, my all,
Are at your beck and call,
These things I offer you for a lifetime!

(humming)
These things I offer you for a lifetime!
(humming)
These things I offer you for a lifetime!

A cosy little nest,
Just meant for us to share,
Perhaps a tiny guest
Will be arriving there!
My life, my love, my all,
Are at your beck and call,
These things I offer you for a lifetime,
These things I offer you for a lifetime!
