Time, time, time, time
Slips away

Well, hello there
My, it's been a long time
How am I doin'?
Well, I guess I'm doin' fine

It's been so long and it seems
It was only yesterday
Ain't it funny, funny, funny
How time slips away

How's your new love
I hope he's doin' fine
I heard you told him, told him
You're gonna love him, till the end of time

If I remember that's the same thing, same thing
That you told me
It was only yesterday
Ain't it funny, funny, funny
How time just slips away

And sometimes I have to say
I gotta go now

I guess I'll see you
Somewhere 'round, somewhere 'round
You don't know, you never know
We don't know, you can't know

When I'll be back in town
I want you to please
Remember what I told you, what I told you
That in time you're gonna pay

I think it's funny, funny, funny
How time just slips away

All I want you to do is just
Remember, just remember what I told you
In time, in time you're gonna pay

Ain't it funny, funny, funny
How time just slips away

One thing I want you to do is
Just remember, remember what I told you
In time, in time you're gonna pay

Ain't it funny, funny, funny
How time just slips away

That's the same thing, same thing
That you told me
It seems like just the other day

It's funny, funny, funny
How time just slips away
It's funny baby
How time slips away

It's funny, funny, funny
How time just slips away
