In times like these, in times like those,
What will be will be, and so it goes,
And it always goes on and on and on and on and on ,
On, and on and on and on and on it goes.
Mmm-mmm-mmm
Mm-mmmm-mmmmmm
Mmm-mmm-mmm
And there's always been laughing, crying, birth, and dying, boys and girls, with hearts to take, and give and break, and heal and grow and re-create, and raise and nurture but then hurt in times and times like these, and times like those, what will be will be, and so it goes.
And there will always be stop and go and fast and slow, and actions, reactions, and sticks, and stones and broken bones, and those for peace, and those for war, and godbless these ones not those ones, but these ones made times like these, and times like those, what will be will be, and so it goes, and it always goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on it goes.
Mmm-mmm-mmm
Mmm-mmm-mmmmm
Mmm-mmm-mmm
Somehow I know, it won't be the same,
And somehow I know it won't be the same.
