Lyrics
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
(My cup runneth, my cup runneth, my cup runneth over with love)

Sometimes in the morning when shadows are deep
I lie there beside you just watching you sleep
And sometimes I whisper what I’m thinking of
My cup runneth over with love  (my cup, my cup, my cup runneth over with love)
Runneth over with love, oh yeah  (my cup, my cup, my cup runneth over with love)

Sometimes in the evening, oh, when you don’t see
I study the small things you do constantly
And I memorize moments  (moments)
That I’m fondest of  (fondest of)
My cup runneth over, it runneth over with love, yeah, yeah, yeah  (my cup, my cup, my cup runneth over with love)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah  (my cup, my cup, my cup runneth over with love)

(My cup)
In only a moment  (moment)
We both will be old  (someday in the morning)
We won’t even notice the world growing cold  (turning cold)
And so in this moment  (moment)
That I’m thinking of  (thinking of)
Said that my cup runneth over, it runneth over with love, yes it does  (my cup, my cup, my cup runneth over with love)
Oh, oh, oh, it runneth over, oh yeah, yeah  (my cup, my cup, my cup runneth over with love)

Català – La Meva Copa Desborda
(Oh, oh, oh)
(La meva copa desborda, la meva copa desborda, la meva copa desborda amor)

A vegades pel matí, quan les ombres són profundes
M’estiro al teu costat només mirant-te dormir
I de vegades dic en veu baixa el que estic pensant
La meva copa desborda amor  (la meva copa, la meva copa, la meva copa desborda amor)
Desborda amor, oh sí  (la meva copa, la meva copa, la meva copa desborda amor)

A vegades al vespre, oh, quan no em veus
Estudio les petites coses que fas constantment
I memoritzo els moments  (moments)
Que més m’agraden  (més m’agraden)
La meva copa desborda, desborda amor, sí, sí, sí  (la meva copa, la meva copa, la meva copa desborda amor)
Sí, sí, sí, sí, sí, sí  (la meva copa, la meva copa, la meva copa desborda amor)

(La meva copa)
Només en un moment  (un moment)
Tots dos serem grans  (un dia al matí)
Ni tan sols notarem que el món es va refredant  (refredant)
I així, en aquest moment  (moment)
En que estic pensant  (pensant)
Dic que la meva copa desborda, desborda amor, sí que ho fa  (la meva copa, la meva copa, la meva copa desborda amor)
Oh, oh, oh, desborda, oh sí, sí  (la meva copa, la meva copa, la meva copa desborda amor)
