  • Great song. And the vocalists name is Bob Borger, for some reason I find that mildly funny.

  • The moon belongs to everyone, The best things in life are free The stars belong to everyone, They gleam there for you and me The flowers in spring, the robins that sing The sunbeams that shine, they're yours they're mine And love can come to everyone, The best things in life are free

  • Thought this was a 1950s song.. goddamn

    • @Tadfafty no no The version of the song I first heard from was 1950s and it sounded old as shit so I figured it was just the original. But now I know

    • For some reason people confuse the 20s and the 50s a lot.
