Lyrics

Our friends, we come and we go
Just why, we don't know
We search for an answer
Or reason or rhyme

But we've learned from the past
From the shadows we've cast
That we're only a few little drops
In the ocean of time

(Cheering sounds)

In the ocean of time!
In the ocean of time!
We are only a few little drops
In the ocean of time!

(Sing it, ladies!)

We work and we slay
From cradle to grave
(We lie for a nickel!
And we cheat for a dime!)

But one thing is sure!
The rich and the poor!
Are only a few little drops
In the ocean of time!

(Change of key)

Some hunger for fame!
(Some hunger for fame!)
And worldly acclaim!
(And worldly acclaim!)

And some stop at nothing!
(And some stop at nothing!)
Not even at crime!
(Crime! Crime!)

But the devil, he grins! (Devil he grins!)
While he's counting our sins! (Three! Four!)
But we're only a few little drops
In the ocean of time!

(Everybody!)

In the ocean of time! (In the ocean of time!)
In the ocean of time! (In the ocean of time!)
We are only a few little drops
In the ocean of time!

(Other change of key)

And therefore it pays!
To mend our ways!
To love, is the answer!
Yes! And love is sublime!

So let's bury all hate! (Hate! Hate!)
Before it's too late! (Hate! Hate!)
For we're only a few little drops
In the ocean of time!

(One more time!)

In the ocean of time! (In the ocean of time!)
In the ocean of time! (In the ocean of time!)
We are only a few little drops
In the ocean of time!

In the ocean of time! (In the ocean of time!)
In the ocean of time! (In the ocean of time!)
We are only a few little drops
In the ocean of time!

(One more time!)

In the ocean of time...
