Frank Sinatra--'As Time Goes By'

 

 

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

And when two lovers woo
They still say, I love you
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by

Moonlight and love songs never out of date
Hearts full of passion, jealousy and hate
Woman needs man and man must have his mate
That no one can deny

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by

NOT Frank Sinatra--'A Laugh I Cannot Buy'

 

I must remember this,
it's always 'a swing and a miss!'
couldn't tell you why
The basics still apply
A laugh I cannot buy

 

The format, punchline too,
some laughs, but mighty few
Just a resigned sigh
when nervous laughter starts,
a laugh I cannot by

 

Naughty and slapstick are never out of style
but I ain't been funny for quite awhile
Women and men both will projectile
I missed humor by a mile.

 

It's always the same response,
ain't got the humor nuance
A case of 'why even try?'

The world will always love comedy
but a laugh I cannot buy

 

Repeat
