Lyrics for Our Day Will Come.

Bob Hilliard and Mort Garson

Our day will come,
and we'll have everything,
think of the joy,
falling in love could bring,
no-one can tell me that I'm too young to know,
young to know,
I love you so,
love you so,
and you love meeeeeeeeeeeee,

Our day will come,
if we just wait a while,
no tears for us,
think love and wear a smile,
our dreams have magic because we'll allways stay in love this way,
our day will come,

instrumental

Our dreams have magic because we'll allways stay in love this way,
our day will come,

Yes our day will come,
and we'll have everything,
just think of the joy,
falling in love could bring,
no-one can tell me that I'm too young to know,
young to know,
I love you so,
love you so,
and you love meeeeeeeeeeeee,

Our day will come,
if we just wait a while,
no tears for us,
think love and wear a smile,
our dreams have magic because we'll allways stay in love this way,
our day will come,
mmm yes our day will come,
our day will come,
fade.....
