Love is funny or it's sad
Or it's quiet or it's mad
It's a good thing or it's bad
But beautiful
Beautiful to take a chance and if you fall, you fall
And I'm thinking I wouldn't mind at all
Love is tearful or it's gay
It's a problem or it's play
It's a heartache either way
But beautiful
And I'm thinking if you were mine
I'd never let you go
And that would be but beautiful
I know.

Music Jimmy Van Heusen
Lyrics Johnny Burke
Bing Crosby sang "But Beautiful" in the fifth "Road" film
that he made with Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour.
Sinatra first recorded it in 1947 and performed it
in 1966 on television.
