Somg: "Three-Quarter Time"
(© 2003- Words by Betty J. Curtis )
Sung at song fest in the Barn.
Sung by Laura Lee.
THREE-QUARTER TIME
Note: Dec. 2007
J. Gale Kilgore has done music and vocal
for this lyric, but I do not yet have mp3 demo.

Why do we learn so much - so late ?
What's boring to youth - to age is great.
Just to sit on the porch in late afternoon,
listening to strains of a three-quarter tune.

Three-quarter time - not the tempo of youth,
to age seems to be the right one for Truth.
A waltz is a marriage of the feet and the mind.
The Ages must roll in three-quarter time.


Chorus
The face of love, the glow in the eyes,
and the dancers' hearts entertwined.
They are saying"I love you" while the music sighs,
through an elegant tune in three-quarter time.
The Ages must roll in three-quarter time.

Like the wind on the sea, moonlight on water,
when it flows naturally, it moves in three-quarter.
Made for the touch of a soft violin,
while the piano wanders, a guitar drifts in.

The singer sings smoothly as all crooners should,
like a sweet little songbird at home in the wood.
A waltz is a marriage of the feet and the mind.
The Ages must roll in three-quarter time.

Chorus
The face of love, the glow in the eyes,
and the dancers' hearts entertwined
They are saying "I love you" while the music flies,
through an elegant tune in three-quarter time.
The Ages must roll in three-quarter time.


Followed by song: "Long Distance Love":
as a duet sung by Mr. & Mrs. Johnson
