Well, hello there!
My, it's been a long, long time . . .
How am I doin' ? Oh, I guess I'm doin' fine
It's been so long now, and it seems that it was only yesterday
Gee! ain't it funny, how time slips away?
How's your new love?
I hope he's doin' fine
Heard you told him that you'd love him 'till the end of time
Now, that's the same thing,
the same thing you told me, seems like just the other day
Gee! ain't it funny, funny how time slips away?
< instrumental break ~ sax solo >
Just you remember, what I tell you
that in time you're gonna pay
and it's surprisin',
surprisin' how time slips away!
Words and Music by Willie Nelson, 1962
