Time will tell, time will tell
Time alone, alone will tell

When I was just a little boy, only six years old
I asked my daddy, "What he thinks my future hold"
He said, "Son, when you grow up to be a man
The facts of life you will start to understand
Nobody knows, just what tomorrow may bring
So I wanna tell you now and listen while I sing"

Father said, "Time will tell, time will tell
Time alone, alone will tell"

Now I'm a lonely man trying to make life on my own
Ever since the day I was born, I never have a happy home
Just like a river, I've been running ever since
The day I was born in that broken down little town
I'm wondering now just what my gain will be
'Cause it seems to me, happiness I'll never see

Mama said, "Time will tell, time will tell
Time alone, alone will tell"
What he say now, time will tell, time will tell
Time alone, alone will tell, oh yeah

Time keeps on changing like the weather and the seasons
"For every mistake", Mama said, "There must be a reason"
After a storm, there's got to be a calm
So I think I'll wait a while and try to wear a smile

Mama said, "Time will tell, time will tell
Time alone, alone will tell"
What he say now, time will tell, time will tell
Time alone, alone will tell

One more time now
Time will tell, time will tell
Time alone, alone will tell
One more time now
Time will tell, time will tell
Time alone, alone will tell
