These days it's hard to have fun
Looking for a little girl, a little undone
By the progress of man
By the touch of a loving hand 

Maybe we touch too much
You and me, baby, I'm not good in a clutch
I'm not gonna sit and cry
Though I'm an unlucky guy
I'm forever wondering 

[Chorus:]
Forever yours
Forever yours
Forever opening doors
Forever yours
Forever yours
Forever 

All this allegiance has me scared
They move in packs, we huddle in pairs
Two in a million one-way fares
Anybody going anywhere? 

So this is the modern dance
You and me, baby; this love don't stand a chance
But I'm not gonna sit and cry
Though I'm an unlucky guy
I'm forever wondering 

[Chorus]

Yours to have and yours to unfold
Who's to say we're just getting old?
You're the one never done what I told her
This chip on my shoulder is
Getting smaller by the day
Just when I was getting used to getting my way
Everybody has a to pay
When love finally has her say 

I guess I better speak up now
You and me, baby; I'm holding on somehow
I'm not gonna sit and cry
No, I'm just a lucky guy
I'm forever wondering, forever wondering 

[Chorus]
