So Smooth ~ 1955
 
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 . . .
 
An' 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Moonlight an' love songs never out of date,
Hearts full of passion, jealousy an' 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 an' glory,
A case of do or die, the world will always welcome lovers,
As time goes by . . .
 
< instrumental verse three >
 
It's still the same old story, a fight for love an' glory,
A case of do or die, the world will always welcome lovers,
As time goes by . . .
 
~ from the 1931 Stage musical "Everybody's Welcome"
and the 1942 film "Casablanca"
