So Many People Lyrics - Saturday Night

Saturday Night the Musical - So Many People Lyrics

[WOMAN]
I said the man for me
Must have a castle
A man of means he'd be
A man of fame
And then I met a man
Who hadn't any
Without a penny
To his name

I had to go and fall
For so much less than
What I had planned from all
The magazines

I should be good and sore
What am I happy for?
I guess the man means more
Than the means

So many people in the world
And what can they do?
They'll never know love

[BOTH]
Like my love for you
So many people laugh

[MAN]
At what they don't know
But that's their concern
If just a few, say
Half a million or so

[BOTH]
Could see us
They'd learn

So many people in the world
Don't know what they've missed
They'd never believe
Such joy could exist
And if they tell us it's a thing we'll outgrow
They're jealous as they can be
That with so many people in the world
You love me
