Hey don't save your kisses - just pass 'em around

You'll find my reason - is logically sound

Who's gonna know that you past them around

A hundred years from today

And why crave a penthouse - that's fit for a queen

You're nearer heaven - on mamma Earth's green

If you had millions - what would they all me

One hundred years from today

So (Hey) laugh and sing - make love the thing

Be happy while you may

('Cause) There's always one - beneath the sun

Who's bound to make you feel that way

The moon is shining - and that's a (very) good sign

Cling to me closer - say (that) you'll be mine

Remember baby we won't see it shine

A hundred years from today, a hundred years from today
