Brighton
If you sing it right, you might get a legover tonight!



Darling, I am growing old,
Silver threads among the gold
Shine upon my brow today;
Life is fading fast away;
But, my darling, you will be, will be,
Always young and fair to me,
Yes, my darling, you will be,
Always young and fair to me.
Chorus:

When your hair is silver white,
And your cheeks no longer bright,
With the roses of the May;
I will kiss your lips and say-
Oh! my darling, mine alone, alone,
You have never older grown,
Yes, my darling, mine alone,
You have never older grown.
Chorus:
Love can never more grow old,
Locks may lose their brown and gold,
Cheeks may fade and hollow grow,
But the hearts that love will know
Never, never, winter's frost and chill:
Summer warmth is in them still-
Never winter's frost and chill,
Summer warmth is in them still.
Chorus:

Love is always young and fair,-
What to us is silver hair,
Faded cheeks or steps grown slow,
To the heart that beats below?
Since I kissed you, mine alone, alone,
You have never older grown-
Since I kissed you, mine alone,
You have never older grown.
 
already got the leg over this morning so i don't have to ruin the moment by singing to her!
 
How about:
While I still appreciate you
let's find love while we may.
Because I know I'll hate you
when you are old and grey.
So say you'll love me here and now
I'll make the most of that.
Say you'll love and trust me, for I know you'll disgust me,
when you're old and getting fat.

An awful debility
a lessened utility
a lack of mobility is a strong possibility.
In all probability
I'll lose my virility
and you your fertility and desirability.
And this liability
of total sterility
will lead to hostility and a sense of ... futility.
So let's act with agility
while we still have facility
for we'll soon reach senility and lose the ability.

Your teeth will start to go dear
your waist will start to spread.
In twenty years or so, dear
I'll wish that you were dead.
I'll never love you then at all
the way I do today.
So please remember, when I leave in September
I told you so in May.

The wonderful Tom Lehrer, may he live forever.:smile:
