Any old time you want me
I am yours for the asking darling
Any old time you need me
I’ll be there with love that’s lasting darling.
All through the years we’ll stand together
Sharing the tears and stormy weather
And the sunshine will be yours and mine
Any old time you’re blue
You’ll have our love to chase away the blues
And any old thing you do I’ll see you through.
So just remember that I am waiting dear
If ever you want me I’ll be near,
Any old time and any place you may be.
