Hearken to me both high and low
I'll sing for you a song
Of kings and queens and rose-lipped maidens
Courting lightfoot lads

Now love is grand when love is new
The heart blood, it runs strong
There's nothing a doting lad won't do
To keep his princess warm

He'll tease her with poems and promises
He'll ask her out to dance
He'll cajole and he'll beg and he'll always win
In bittersweet romance

For time it comes, and time it goes
It makes the strongest tree to bend
Kings and queens have no defense
Time brings all things to an end

But he goes out with his drinking pals
His eyes begin to roam
He forgets all about the brown-eyed beauty
Who now sits home alone

There's no more walks down Lovers Lane
There's no more wine in the sun
All that's left is a hollow pain
Time, alas, you've won

For time it comes, and time it goes
It makes the strongest tree to bend
Kings and queens have no defense
Time brings all things to an end

Now all who wish for love to stay
And last your whole life through
Keep ahead of time, me boys
And never be untrue

For time it comes, and time it goes
It makes the strongest tree to bend
Kings and queens have no defense
Time brings all things to an end
Time brings all things to an end
