Hearken to me both high and low,
I'll sing for you a song,
Of kings and queens and rose-lipped maidens,
Courting light-foot lads.

Now love is grand when love is new,
The heart blood it runs strong;
There's nothing a doting lad won't do,
To keep his princess warm.

He'll tease her with poems and promises,
He'll ask her out to dance;
He'll cajole and he'll beg and he'll always win,
In bittersweet romance.

For time it comes and time it goes,
It makes the strongest tree to bend;
Kings and queens have no defence,
Time brings all things to an end.

But he goes out with his drinkin' pals,
His eyes begin to rove;
He forgets all about the brown-eyed beauty,
Who now sits home alone.

There's no more walks down lovers' lane,
There's no more wine in the sun;
All that's left is a hollow pain,
Time, alas, you've won.

For time it comes and time it goes,
It makes the strongest tree to bend;
Kings and queens have no defence,
Time brings all things to an end.

Now all who wish for love to stay,
And last your whole life through,
Keep ahead of time, me boys,
And never be untrue.

For time it comes and time it goes,
It makes the strongest tree to bend;
Kings and queens have no defence,
Time brings all things to an end.
Time brings all things to an end.
