Lyrics (lyrics):

STOLEN MOMENTS...
STOLEN MOMENTS...

IF I TOLD YOU
I LOVE YOU,
PRETTY BABY,
WOULD IT MAKE UP
FOR WHAT THEY SAY?
IF I HOLD YOU
AND SHIELD YOU,
DARLIN',
WILL YOU LINGER
AWHILE TODAY?
IF I HOLD YOU
AND HUG YOU,
MY KISSIN'
WON'T BUG YOU,
THE GOSSIPS
WON'T HURT YOU,
I'LL NEVER
DESERT YOU,
AND SOMEDAY
WILL FIND US
WHERE PEOPLE
WON'T BIND US
TO THE HANDS
OF TIME.
I CAN USE MORE
THAN MOMENTS,
PRETTY BABY,
AND I KNOW WHERE
YOU STEAL THEM FROM.
THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS
I'LL TEACH YOU,
AND THEY CALL ME
A USELESS BUM.
THEY JUST CHATTER
AND CLATTER
AND PATTER
AND MATTER,
THEY TITTER
AND TWITTER,
THEIR GLITTER
GETS BITTER,
BUT WE'RE HERE,
I STEERED HERE,
IT'S WEIRD HERE,
THOSE BEARDS,
DEAR,
WATCH THE PANTOMIME.
WATCH THE PANTOMIME.
