Why does it get so late so early, when I’m so in love with you.
We never dance enough, don’t get a chance enough,
Why, honey, we just don’t have time to romance enough
To think of all those hugs and kisses that we never will get through
Why does it get so late so early, honey, when I’m so in love with you.
Why does it get so late so early when I’m walking home with you,
It may be two or three, but honey gosh you’re gee
This ain’t the night to mop the opportunity.
How can I leave you now of all times when my heart is wearing blue,
Why does it get so late so early, honey, when I’m so in love with you.
How come it gets so late so early, well, I really must confess
I’m also glad that I’m on Pacific Time
It’s three hours later in New York state or I’ll miss my guess
You can have your heart send flowers, but it’ll take you back four hours,
How does it get so late so early, baby, when I’m so, so in love with you.
