And it won't take long to forget you
Time it passes fast
It'll all be over in a minute
You'll be in the past

You can lose the love of a lifetime
In a single roll
You can gain a fortune in an instant
Or you can lose your soul

And it won't take long to forget you
You know I'm never wrong
It'll all be over in a minute
And it won't take long, ah

And it won't take long to forgive you
But it's hard to forget
Cause it seems like it's yesterday
The day that we first met

When you give me a smouldering look and
Put out your cigarette
When I saw you come sauntering over
You wore a pale blue dress


And it won't take long to forget you
You know I'm never wrong
It'll all be over in a minute
And it won't take long


Life is short, one look and it's over
Comes as quite a shock
All I've got is some memories
Stuck in an old shoebox

And it won't take long to forget you
You know I'm never wrong
It'll all be over by Christmas
No, it won't take long, ah

It won't take long

It won't take long

It won't take long

It won't take long

It won't take long - it won't take long
It won't take long

It won't take long

It won't take long
