Lyrics verse:
THIS DAY AND AGE
WE'RE LIVING IN
GIVES CAUSE
FOR APPREHENSION,
WITH SPEED
AND NEW INVENTION,
AND THINGS
LIKE THIRD DIMENSION,
YET,
WE GET A TRIFLE WEARY,
WITH MISTER EINSTEIN'S
THE'RY,
SO WE MUST GET DOWN
TO EARTH,
AT TIMES RELAX,
RELIEVE THE TENSION.
NO MATTER WHAT
THE PROGRESS,
OR WHAT MAY YET
BE PROVED,
THE SIMPLE FACTS
OF LIFE ARE SUCH
THEY CANNOT BE REMOVED.

Chorus:
YOU MUST REMEMBER THIS,
A KISS IS STILL A KISS,
A SIGH IS JUST A SIGH
THE FUNDAMENTAL THINGS
APPLY,
AS TIME GOES BY.
AND WHEN TWO LOVERS WOO,
THEY STILL SAY,
I LOVE YOU,
ON THAT
YOU CAN RELY
NO MATTER
WHAT THE FUTURE BRINGS,
AS TIME GOES BY.

MOONLIGHT AND LOVE SONGS
NEVER OUT OF DATE,
HEARTS FULL OF PASSION,
JEALOUSY AND HATE
WOMAN NEEDS MAN
AND MAN
MUST HAVE HIS MATE,
THAT NO ONE CAN DENY.

IT'S STILL
THE SAME OLD STORY,
A FIGHT
FOR LOVE
AND GLORY,
A CASE
OF DO
OR DIE!
THE WORLD
WILL ALWAYS WELCOME
LOVERS,
AS TIME GOES BY.

Lyrics verse 1:
DIDN'T WE HAVE
A LOVELY EVENING?
OUR PARTY
WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.
OH, DIDN'T MISSUS SMITH
LOOK STUNNING?
DID YOU NOTICE
MISSUS JONES' NEW DRESS?
WHAT DID MISTER BROWN SAY
TO UNCLE BENNY?
JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS,
HE HAD A FEW TOO MANY.
SURE WAS A HUNGRY CROWD,
THEY DIDN'T LEAVE A SCRAP
FOR ROVER.
WE OUGHT TO FEEL
REAL PROUD,
AND MIGHTY GLAD
THE DARN THING'S OVER.

Chorus:
NO MORE COMPANY
TO FEED,
NO MORE PAPERS
LEFT TO READ,
WHAT'S TO DO
ABOUT IT?
LET'S PUT OUT THE LIGHTS AND GO TO SLEEP.
NO MORE ANYTHING
TO DRINK.
LEAVE THOSE DISHES
IN THE SINK.
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
SIMPLY NIGHTY-NIGHT
AND SO TO SLEEP.

YOU'RE WAITING NOW
FOR ME TO SAY,
I LOVE YOU MORE
AND MORE
AND MORE, DEAR,
YOU'RE LOOKING YOUNGER
EV'RY DAY,
YOU NEVER WERE
SO SWEET BEFORE,
DEAR.

NO MORE
MONEY IN THE BANK,
NO CUTE BABY
WE CAN SPANK.
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
LET'S PUT OUT THE LIGHTS AND GO TO SLEEP.

verse 2:
DIDN'T THEY MAKE AN AWFUL MESS,
THOUGH?
THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF DAMAGE
DONE.
OH, CAN'T WE LAUGH IT OFF?
I GUESS SO.
THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL
EXPENSIVE FUN.
ALL THOSE NAUGHTY
LITTLE RINGS
MADE BY NAUGHTY GLASSES,
THOSE CIGARETTE BURNS,
REMAINS OF DEMITASSES.
NOW, HONEY,
PLEASE DON'T WEEP,
IT'S SIMPLY
THAT YOU'RE WEAK
FROM LAUGHTER.
WE BETTER
GET SOME SLEEP,
SO WE CAN FACE THE MORNING
AFTER.

Chorus:
NO MORE
COMPANY TO FEED,
NO MORE
PAPERS LEFT TO READ,
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
LET'S PUT OUT THE LIGHTS AND GO TO SLEEP.
NO MORE
ANYTHING TO DRINK.
LEAVE THOSE DISHES
IN THE SINK.
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
SIMPLY NIGHTY-NIGHT
AND SO TO SLEEP.

YOU'RE WAITING NOW
FOR ME TO SAY,
I LOVE YOU
MORE AND MORE
AND MORE, DEAR,
YOU'RE LOOKING YOUNGER
EV'RY DAY,
YOU NEVER WERE
SO SWEET BEFORE,
DEAR.

NO MORE
MONEY IN THE BANK,
NO CUTE BABY
WE CAN SPANK.
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
LET'S PUT OUT THE LIGHTS AND GO TO SLEEP.

Lyrics SING SOMETHING SIMPLE,
A LITTLE DITTY
THAT'S SWEET AND SIMPLE,
YOU'LL GET THE SWING OF IT SOON,
FOR HERE'S A TUNE
THAT ANY CHILD CAN SING.
'D' STANDS FOR DIMPLE,
THE WORDS ARE SILLY,
THE SONG IS SIMPLE.
AND AFTER HEARING IT ONCE
THE DUMBEST DUNCE
CAN MEMORIZE THE THING.

"DO-RE-MI-FA-SOL-LA-SI-DO,"
YOU CAN'T GO WRONG.
OH, SAY IT'S BOUND TO SOUND
LIKE SOME OTHER SONG.

BUT LORD KNOWS IT'S SIMPLE,
SO GET TOGETHER
AND LET'S BE SIMPLE.
I DON'T KNOW
WHETHER OR NOT YOU KNEW
THEY CALL THIS CLASSIC
"I LOVE YOU."
