IRVING BERLIN lyrics - The Road That Leads To Love

IRVING BERLIN
"The Road That Leads To Love"

[1st verse:]
Once a boy met a man who was famous
Filled with envy the boy sadly sighed
"Oh, how happy I'd be
If such fame smiled on me"
Then the famous man replied

[Refrain:]
The road that leads to fortune and fame
Is paved with gold in your dreams

But after you've journeyed and reached your aim
It seldom is all that it seems

To have, to hold, to love and caress
Is all we can ask from above

For the road that leads to happiness
Is the road that leads to love

[2nd verse:]
On the highway of love ev'ry milestone
Is an Angel from Heaven above
All the world will be bright
If you turn to the right
To the road that leads to love
