- This day and age we're liv
-ing in gives cause for ap -pre -hen -sion, With speed and new
in -ven -tion, and things like third di -men -sion,
- Yet, we get a tri -fle wear
-y, with Mis -ter Ein -stein's the -'ry, So we must get down
to earth, at times re -lax, re -lieve the ten -sion.
- No mat -ter what the pro
-gress, or what may yet be proved, The sim -ple facts of life
are such they can -not be re -moved.
- You must re -mem -ber this,
a kiss is still a kiss, A sigh is just a sigh;
- The fun -da -men -tal things
ap -ply, As time goes by.
- And when two lov -ers woo,
they still say, "I love you." On that you can re -ly;
- No mat -ter what the fu
-ture brings, As time goes by.
- Moon -light and love -songs
nev -er out of date, Hearts full of pas -sion, jeal -ous -y and
- Wo -man needs man and man
must have his mate, That no one can de -ny.
- It's still the same old
sto -ry, a fight for love and glo -ry, A case of do or die!
- The world will al -ways
wel -come lov -ers, As time goes by.
