The kids just went to sleep
And I thought I'd play this old time record
Darling, come and dance with me together
Though I look a little older, you're as pretty as the day we met
A happy home never hurt no one yet

Remember when we used to laugh at old father time
All in all the joke's on him and he don't even mind

Sigh, and put your arms around me,
Sway and look into my eyes
Isn't it so funny how time flies
Yah da dah, da da da da
Yah da dah

Remember when we used to laugh at old father time
All in all the joke's on him and he don't even mind

I'm not saying the party's over I just wanted to tell you how,
Very good it has been up 'til now
How very good it has been up 'til now
Isn't it so funny how time flies.

Remember when we used to laugh at old father time
All in all the joke's on him and he don't even mind
Sigh, and put your arms around me,
Sway and look into my eyes
Isn't it so funny how time flies.
