Now we take our time So nonchalant And spend our nights So Bon vivant We dress our days In silken robes The money comes The money goes We know it's all a passing phase,
We light our lamps For atmosphere And hang our hopes On chandeliers We're going long We're gaining weight We're sleeping long And far too late And so it's times To change our ways But I've loved these days.
Now as we indulge In things refined We hide our hearts From harder times A string of pearls A foreign car Oh we can only go so far On caviar and Cabernay.
We drown our doubts In dry champagne And soothe our souls With fine cocaine I don't know why I ever care We'll get so high And get nowhere We'll have to change our jaded ways, But I've loved these days.
So before we end And then begin We'll drink a toast to how it's been A few more hours to be complete A few more nights on satin sheets A few more times that I can say, I've loved these days.
