As Time Goes By

Writer(s): Herman Hupfeld
Sung by Dooley Wilson in the 1943 film “Casablanca”

You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is still (just) a sigh, the fundamental things apply, as time goes by
And when two lovers woo, they still say: “I love you”
On that you can rely, no matter what the future brings, as time goes by
Moonlight and love songs – never out of date, hearts full of passion – jealousy and hate
Woman needs man – and man must have his mate, that no one can deny
It’s still the same old story, a fight for love and glory, a case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers, as time goes by.
