Lyrics and Music by Herman Hupfeld
1931 Warner Bros. Music Corp., ASCAP

This day and age we're living in,
Gives cause for apprehension.
With speed and new invention
And things like fourth dimension.
Yet we get a trifle weary
With Mr. Einstein's theory,
So we must get down to earth at times,
Relax relieve the tension.
And no matter what the progress,
Or what may yet be proved,
The simple facts of life are such,
They cannot be removed.

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Never out of date.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.
