I never had a lot of spendin' money
I never had a lot of change to spare
But darlin', do you think I worry
Little darlin', do you think I care

There's a whole lot of things
In this restless world
That a whole lot of money can't buy
You can't get it from your pocketbook
And I'm gonna tell you why

Because it's precious
Your love is precious, child
Because it's precious
Your love is precious, child

All the different kinds of teas in China
All the shiny little gems so rare
Gold and silver and sparkling diamonds
Won't ever with your love compare

So take your cares and your troubles
And send them all away
And put them back where they all belong
Forget about them for a day

Because it's precious
Your love is precious, child
Because it's precious
Your love is precious, child

Because it's precious
(Precious thing)
Your love is precious, child
(Precious thing)
Because it's precious
(It's precious)
Your love is precious, child
(It's a precious thing)

A little of understanding
Is gonna change your heart and soul
It's gonna heal your broken spirit
So make love your special goal

Because it's precious
Your love is precious, child
Because it's precious
Your love is precious, child
