Got to questionwhere they're coming from
What knowledge of it is me that they speak?
Verse3:
Reinventedall the stodes they know
Give them all a different slant
What is it that they're really looking for?
Just a hobby on the intemet?

Verse2:
Say que sera,whateverwill be
But then I keep on searchingfor immoftality
She's so beautiful, but she's going to die some day
Everything in lifejust passesaway.
Precioustime is slipping away
You know she's only queenfor a day
It doesn't matter to which God you pray
Precioustime is slipping away.
Verse3: (Instrumental)
Verse4:
Well this world is cr'uelwith its twists and tums
Well the fire's still in me and the passionburns
I love her madly 'til the day I die
'Til
hell freezesover and the rivers run dry.
Precioustime is slipping away
You know she's only queenfor a day
It doesn't matter to which God you pray
Becauseprecioustime is slipping away.

verse2:
oi:r:.r,.:-.I.i i- :
In the wee midnight hour I was parking my car
r: i. : rt : :
In this dimly-lit towr
490.' C l: :
' .I was attackedby two thugs, who took me for a mug
!i;--.'
And shovedme down on the ground
And they pulled out a knife, and I fought my way up
As they scarpered from the scene
Well this is no New Yok street,and there's no Bobby on the beat
And things ain'tjust what they seem
And I'm taking in the Indian Summer
And I'm soaking it up in my mind
And I'm pretendirgthat it's pa&dise
On a golden autumn day, on a golden autumn day
On a golden autumn day, on a golden autumn day.
Verse3: Instrumental
Verse4:
Who would think this could happen in a city like this
Among Blake's green and pleasanthills?
And we must remember, as we go through September
Among thesedark satanicmills
If there's such a thing asjustice I could take them out and flog them
In the neaest green field
And it might be a lesson to the bleeders of the system
In this whole society.
And I'm taking in the Indian summer
And I'm soaking it up in my mind
And I'm pretendinglike it's paradise
On a golden autumr day, on a golden autuml day
On a golden autumn day, on a golden autumn day e1c.
