Shirley Temple Songs - Lyrics from the 1930s

Shirley Temple Songs


Shirley Temple was known as much for her songs as she was for her tap dancing. I have created a list of Shirley's most famous songs, and the lyrics. If you have the lyrics to a song that I don't currently have, please email it to me so that I can add them to the website.

Movie:Young People
Year:1940
Song Name:I Wouldn't Take a Million
Copyright 1940
Robbins Music Corp.
Lyrics/Music by: Mack Gordon and Harry Warren

I don't care for treasures
I don't ask for fame
Or the fortunes others may possess
You're my only treasure
You're my claim to fame
My career is here in your caress

(Jack Oakie)
I wouldn't take a million for a girl like you
I wouldn't take a million for the things
you do
If they offered me a mansion in the finest part of town
If you're not in that mansion, then I would turn it down
I wouldn't take a million for the twinkle in your eyes
I'd rather win a smile from you than win the Nobel Prize
If I were just a pauper and I didn't have a sou
I still would have a million if I just had you

(Shirley)
I wouldn't take a million for a Mom and Dad like you
I wouldn't take a million for the little things you do
If they offered me a mansion in the finest part of town
If you're not in that mansion, then I would turn it down
I wouldn't take a million for the moments we have known
I'd rather sit upon your knee than on a royal throne
If I could rub Aladdin's lamp to make a wish come true
I'd wish that ev'ry kid could have a Mom and Dad like you
