- This song is in the key
- This day and age we're living
in gives cause for apprehension, With speed and new invention,
and things like third dimension,
- Yet, we get a trifle weary,
with Mister Einstein's the'ry, So we must get down to earth,
at times relax, relieve the tension.
- No matter what the progress,
or what may yet be proved, The simple facts of life are such
they cannot be removed.
- You must remember this,
a kiss is still a kiss, A sigh is just a sigh;
- The fundamental things apply,
As time goes by.
- And when two lovers woo,
they still say, "I love you." On that you can rely;
- No matter what the future
brings, As time goes by.
- Moonlight and lovesongs
never out of date, Hearts full of passion, jealousy and hate;
- Woman needs man and man
must have his mate, That no one can deny.
- It's still the same old
story, a fight for love and glory, A case of do or die!
- The world will always welcome
lovers, As time goes by.
