Kingston Trio – Just Once Around The Clock lyrics

Sigmund Romberg/Hammerstein

Nothing to regret tomorrow, nothing to regret. You'll find me making no demand or claim upon you.
Kiss me and forget. Kiss me and forget.
Kiss me while you may. Tomorrow is another day, so, while you're glowing with the sweet, warm flame upon you
Let it burn away. Let it's light be short and gay.

Just once around the clock and then goodbye, dear. Love likes to fly by night so let it fly, dear.
Love likes to fly by night so let it fly, dear and when it's over bid me goodbye, dear.

Just once around the clock as happy strangers who seek the joys of life without it's dangers.
Just once around the clock, let beauty lead you and when it's over, darling, God speed you.
Just as we met with the coming of the moonlight, we'll part with the rising of the sun.
