The same old story
It's as old as the stars above
The same old story
Of a boy and a girl in love
The scenes say more moonlight
The times say more June night
Romance's the thing
Two hearts away deep in a dream
The same old story
It's been told much too much before
The same old story
But it's worth telling just once more
It's all fun and laughter
They lived ever after in ecstasy
The same old story but it's new to me

It's all fun and laughter
They lived ever after in ecstasy
The same old story but it's new to me
