You may think that I’m talking foolish

You’ve heard that I’m wild and I’m free

You may wonder how I can promise you now

This love, that I feel for you, always will be

 

You’re not just time that I’m killing

I’m no longer one of those guys

As sure as I live   this love that I give

Is gonna be yours until the day that I die – oh, baby

 

 

I’m gonna love you forever, forever and ever, amen

As long as old men sit and talk about the weather

As long as old women sit and talk about old men

 

If you wonder how long I’ll be faithful

I’ll be happy to tell you again

I’m gonna love you forever and ever, forever and ever, amen

 

 

They say that time takes its toll on a body

Makes the young girls brown hair turn grey

But honey, I don’t care, I ain’t in love with your hair

And if it all fell out, well, I’d love you anyway

 

They say that time can play tricks on a memory,

make people forget things they knew.

well, it’s easy to see   it’s happening to me

I’ve already forgotten every woman but you – oh, darling

 

 

I’m gonna love you forever, forever and ever, amen

As long as old men sit and talk about the weather

As long as old women sit and talk about old men

 

If you wonder how long I’ll be faithful

well, just listen to how this song ends

I’m gonna love you forever and ever, forever and ever, amen

 

I’m gonna love you forever and ever, forever and ever,

forever and ever, forever and ever, amen
