Linda Ronstadt:
Well, hello there.
My, it's been a long, long time.
How'm I doin'?
Well, I guess that I'm doin' fine.
Homer Simpson:
It's been so long now
And it seems
That it was only yesterday.
Homer Simpson and Linda Ronstadt:
Ain't it funny
How time slips away?
Homer Simpson:
How's your new love?
I hope that he's doin' fine.
I heard you told him
That you'd love him till the end of time.
Linda Ronstadt:
Now that's the same thing
That you told me.
Seems like just the other day.
Homer Simpson and Linda Ronstadt:
Ain't it funny
How time slips away?
(piano and steel guitar solos)
Linda Ronstadt:
I've got to go now.
Homer Simpson:
I guess I'll see you around.
Don't know when, though.
Linda Ronstadt:
Never know when I'll be back in town.
But remember
What I do
That in time, you're gonna pay.
Homer Simpson and Linda Ronstadt:
It's surprisin'
How time slips away.
Ain't it funny
How time slips away?
