    Lyrics

    Listen mister I won't waste your time
    I hope all the mistakes you made were a lot like mine
    Lovin' girls too much sometimes they made you cry
    Maybe we've got more livin' to do with a lot less pain
    Here, let's drink to you
    These are the words I knew would break the ice
    I held my hand out and he shook it twice
    It seemed to me like I'd been here before
    Deja vu, familiar voice
    And the salute of my choice

    Salute gentlemen of days gone by
    Ladies of leisure and of flashing eye
    May some romantic fool turn on your light
    As for me I'm in between
    All that I can do is dream

    You got a lot more livin' to do
    And a lot more lovin' too
    When you make it through the night with no end in sight
    And the dawn peeks through
    You got a lot more livin' to do

    Salute nightingales upon the tide
    Brothers of the cloth tonight who must be tried
    May all of your martinis be forever dry
    As for me I'm in between
    All that I can do is dream

    You got a lot more livin' to do
    And a lot more lovin' too
    When you make it through the night with no end in sight
    And the dawn peeks through
    You got a lot more livin' to do
    And a lot more lovin' too
    You got a lot more livin' to do
    And a lot more lovin' too
