Janet:Boy, when you look at meDo you judge me by my cover?Ya got to be kiddin' me,To think that I'm that kind of loverI don't mean to disagreeSorry you can't buy my kissesOpen your heart and seeTrue love comes for free


Luther:I'm keepin' my heart openHopin' you won't stab me in it'Cause I've been in love before,And when I had to pay I didn'tI'll lose my sanityTryin' to measure your intentionsWhat do you want from me How much will it be?


Janet:No more than you're willing to give 'causeyou won't pay nothin' for this good lovin'It's for free


Luther:And I won't make you promisesI'll just do all that I can to be your lover'Cause I understand

Chorus:The best things in life are freeNow that I've discovered what you mean to meThe best things in life are freeNow that we've found each otherThe best things in life are free
