Any time, any day
You can hear the people say,
But he wont mind, well, I don't know
But I say love is kind
Soldier boy kisses girl
Leaves behind a tragic world
But he wont mind, he's in love
And he says love is fine

Oh -- yes, indeed we know
That people will find a way to go
No matter what the man said
And love is fine for all we know
For all we know, our love will grow
-- that's what the man said
So wont you listen to what the man said

He said. .. ..

Oh -- yes, indeed we know
That people will find a way to go. ..

Oh -- yes, indeed we know
That people will find a way to go. ..
Etc. Etc.

The wonder of it all baby. .. ..
The wonder of it all baby. .. ..
The wonder of it all baby. .. ..
