Baby it won't take long to forget you
Time it passes fast
It'll all be over in a minute
You'll be in the past

You can lose the love of a lifetime
In a single roll
You can gain a fortune in an instant
Or you can lose your soul

And it won't take long to forget ya
You know I'm never wrong
It'll all be over in a minute
And it won't take long

And it won't take long to forgive ya
But it's hard to forget
'Cause it seems like it's yesterday
The day that we first met

When you give me a smouldering look and
Put out your cigarette
When I saw you come samtering over
You wore a pale blue dress

(Repeat Chorus)

Life is short, one look and it's over
Comes as quite a shock
All I got is some memories
Stuck in an old shoebox

And it won't take long to forget ya
You know I'm never wrong
It'll all be over by Christmas
No, it won't take long

It won't take long

    General CommentI love this song. It's the sort of bluesy rock song that the Stones used to write. The meaning is extremely straightforward.

    General CommentI've been there before; wanna forget about a sour love, but can't.
