    Thanks Phil, Ivan & I danced to”AS TIME GOES BY” at our wedding we both loved that song and movie.

  5. “Play it again, Sam.”

    The song and the movie are classic. Isn’t it something how a song can take you back?

    You must remember this
    A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is 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    Never out of date.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.

    Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
    As time goes by.

  6. Where’s “Taking Care of Business?”, the song was so meant to be a movie theme they had to make a movie out of it.
