Original video
Some other guy may give me diamonds and pearls
The kind of things that mean so much to some girls –
But in the long run, baby
It's love that really counts!
Believe me
It's love that really counts!
And baby, after loving you
I'm here to say
That no one else who will do!

Who cares if you don't show me Paris or Rome?
As long as you are here, I'm happy at home –
'Cause in the long run, baby
It's love that really counts!
Believe me
It's love that really counts!
When other loves have come and gone
This love of ours
Will soon go on – and on!

So take me in your arms
And darling, kiss me
Like only you know how to do!
It's love that really counts
Love that really counts –
I'm tellin' you!
