Do I want to be with you
As the years come and go?
Only forever
If you care to know.
Would I grant all your wishes
And be proud of the task
Only forever
If someone should ask.
How long would it take me
To be near if you beckon?
Off hand I would figure
Less than a second.
Do you think I'll remember
How you looked when you smile?
Only forever
That's puttin' it mild.

How long would it take me
To be near if you beckon?
Off hand I would figure
Less than a second.
Do you think I'll remember
How you looked when you smile?
Only forever
That's puttin' it mild.
