The Best Things in Life are Free - Sam Cooke



Lyrics
The moon belongs to everyone
Best things in life they're free
Stars belong to everyone
They cling there for you and for me
Flowers in spring
The robins that sings
The sunbeams that shine
They're yours and their mine
Love can come to everyone
Best things in life they're free
Moon belongs to everyone
The best things in life, they're free
Stars belong to everyone
They glitter there for you and for me
They are yours and me
Flowers in spring
The robins that sing
Sunbeams that shine
They're yours and their mine
Love can come to everyone
Best things in life they're free
All of the good things
Every one of the better things
The best, best things in life
They're free
=====================
SAMUEL COOK (January 22, 1931 – December 11, 1964), known professionally as Sam Cooke, was an American singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur.
Influential as both a singer and composer, he is commonly known as the King of Soul for his distinctive vocals and importance within popular music. His pioneering contributions to soul music contributed to the rise of Aretha FranklinBobby WomackAl GreenCurtis MayfieldStevie WonderMarvin Gaye, and Billy Preston, and popularized the likes of Otis Redding and James Brown. AllMusic biographer Bruce Eder wrote that Cooke was "the inventor of soul music", and possessed "an incredible natural singing voice and a smooth, effortless delivery that has never been surpassed".
Cooke had 30 U.S. top 40 hits between 1957 and 1964, plus three more posthumously. Major hits like "You Send Me", "A Change Is Gonna Come", "Cupid", "Chain Gang", "Wonderful World", "Another Saturday Night", and "Twistin' the Night Away" are some of his most popular songs. Cooke was also among the first modern black performers and composers to attend to the business side of his musical career. He founded both a record label and a publishing company as an extension of his careers as a singer and composer. He also took an active part in the Civil Rights Movement.
On December 11, 1964, at the age of 33, Cooke was shot and killed by Bertha Franklin, the manager of the Hacienda Motel in Los Angeles, California. After an inquest, the courts ruled Cooke's death to be a justifiable homicide. Since that time, the circumstances of his death have been called into question by Cooke's family.  Wikipedia
