​It Takes Time

This song is by Louis Armstrong.

It takes time
To get your gal to see the light
It takes time
It isn't always love at sight

From the first little glance
Till she's ready for romance
Remember, little man, it takes time

It takes time
To make the coffee percolate
It takes time
To get your gal to set the date

From the first moonlight walk
Till you get the baby talk
Remember, little man, it takes time

Now, Rome wasn't built in a day, they say
Not to mention the Pyramids and Sphinx
It took old Rip Van Winkle all of twenty years
To squeeze the livin' daylights out of forty winks

It takes time
To turn the winter into spring
It takes time
To get the dough and get the ring

From the first little smile
Till you're walkin' down the aisle
Remember, little man, it takes time

Now, Rome wasn't built in a day they say
Not to mention the Pyramids and Sphinx
It took old Rip Van Winkle all of twenty years
To squeeze the livin' daylights out of forty winks

It takes time
To turn the winter into spring
It takes time
To get the dough to get the ring

From the first little smile
Till you're walkin' down the aisle
Remember, little man, it takes time
