Lyrics:
Though new young blossoms are born each May,
They burst their buds in the same old way,
So love that's true is a story told
As ever new in a world that's old.

Refrain 1

'Twas not so long ago that
Pa was Mother's beau,
And tho' their styles and fads
Have gone like old sachet,

The things Pa said to Ma,
The things Ma said to Pa,
Were quite the same as all the
Things that lovers say today!

Refrain 2

('Twas not so) long ago
That Pa was Mother's beau,
And tho' their styles and fads
Have gone like old sachet,

The way that Pa kissed Ma,
The way that Ma kissed Pa,
Is one thing that will never be
Improved upon today!
