Georgie Fame – Funny How Time Slips Away lyrics

Well, well, well
Hello there
My, it's been a long long time
You ask me, how am I doing now
You really wanna know?
Well I guess I'm doing fine

It's been so long now
But it seems like it was only yesterday
Well ain't it funny, so funny
How time can just slip right all away

I'd like to ask you a question too
You know, I heard you got a new love
But I wonder, can you truthfully say he's doing fine
You know I heard something the other day, girl
When a friend of mine told me
That you were gonna love him right until the end of time
Now you know that I know that you must have been lying

'Cause that's the very same thing
That you told me, yeah
You know, it seems like
Just the other day
Well ain't it funny, so funny
How time can just slip right all away

I hate to leave you baby
But I think I'd better split now, now
Well, I guess I'll see you somewhere around
You'd be lucky too, but here's one thing you just can't tell
You don't know when though, no
Well girl, you can't tell when I'll be back in town
So hold on to all your money

And please remember
Everything I told you, babe
I believe in time
And I know if you live you're gonna pay
Then you'll find it funny, so funny
How time can slip right all away
And you don't even know it
