PLENTY OF TIME John kander (m) Fred Ebb (l) as rec by Liza Minnelli 1965 Dear Aunt Alice, why should I marry him? My heart's young, I keep free! O, Aunt Alice, there's always time enough; Then she smiles, and took my hand, And she said to me; When I was just a young thing, I can recall I dreamt of seeing Paris in Fall, And London in the Springtime, oh I'd see it all, I'd see it all some day! For I had plenty of time, plenty of time, Why should I worry? Yes, I had plenty of time, plenty of time, What was the hurry? When I was still a young thing, Oh, love was for fun; Kisses and laughter, Then it was done! Yes, when the game was over, Swiftly I'd run, Oh, how I'd run away! For I had plenty of time, plenty of time, Why should I worry? Yes, I had plenty of time, plenty of time, What was the hurry? But a world that's right can soon go wrong, And I guess I waited much too long! For I've never been to Paris or to London im the Spring, And that love I intended to choose The years just refused to bring! And now it suddenly seems That I've run out of dreams I can hold on to! Once I had plenty of time, oh plenty of time, Where has it gone to? Dear Aunt Alice, I think I'll marry him, All too soon it's all too late! Yes Aunt Alice, there's never time enough, Let me hold my love today And let tomorrow wait! (Contributed by Peter Akers - November 2010)
