As Time Goes By
Music by Herman Hupfeld
Lyrics by Herman Hupfeld
From the 1931 Broadway Musical “Everybody’s Welcome”

[ Prologue:
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 re-mem-ber this /
A kiss is still a kiss / a sigh is just a sigh /
The fun-da-men-tal things ap-ply /
as time goes by /

And when two lo-vers woo /
they still say / I love you /
on that you can re-ly /
no mat-ter what the fu-ture brings /
as time goes by /

Moon-light and love songs /
ne-ver out of date /
Hearts full of pas-sion /
jea-lou-sy and hate /
Wo-man needs man /
and man must have his mate /
That no one / can de-ny /

It’s still the same old sto-ry /
a fight for love and glo-ry /
a case of do or die /
The world will al-ways wel-come lo-vers /
As time goes by /

[Optional: This day and age we’re living in /
Gives cause for ap-pre-hen-sion /
With speed and new in-ven-tion /
And things like third di-men-sion /

Yet we get a tri/fle wea/ry /
With Mr. Ein/stein’s theory /
So we must get down to earth at times /
Relax relieve the tension /

And no mat-ter what the pro-gress /
Or what may yet be proved /
The sim-ple facts of life are such /
They can-not be re-moved/]

[Repeat]
