They say don't change the old for the new,
But I've found out this will never do
When you grow old you don't last long
You're here today and then tomorrow you're gone,
I loved a man(gal) for many years gone by,
I tho't his(her) love for me would never die,
He(She) made some changes that would never do
From now on I'm goin' to make some changs too.
For there's a change in the weather
There's a change in the sea
So from now on there'll be a change in me
My walk will be diff'rent my talk and my name
Nothin' about me is goin' to be the same,
I'm goin' to change my way of livin' if that ain't enough,
Then I'll change the way that I strut my stuff,
'cause nobody wants you when you're old and gray
Ther'll be some change made.
They say the old time things are the best,
That may be very good for all the rest
But I'm goin' to let the old things be
'Cause they are certainly not suited for me,
There was a time when I thought that way,
That's why I'm all alone here today
Since ev'ry one of these days seeks something new
From now on I'm goin' to seek some new things too.
For there's a change in the fashions,
Ask the fiminine folks
Even Jack Benny has been changing jokes,
I must make some changes from old to the new
I must do things just the same as others do,
I'm goin' to change my long, tall Mamma(Daddy) for a ittle short Fat,
Goin' to change the number where I live at.
I must have some lovin' or I'll fade away,
There'll be some changes made.
Here are additional choruses that appear on the inside page in the sheet
There's a change in your manner
And a change in your way
There was time once when you was O.K.
You once said you save ev'ry kiss for my
