Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
'Til she's ready for romance
Remember, little man, it takes time
Verse 2
It takes time
To make the coffee percolate
It takes time
To get your gal to set the date
From the first moonlight walk
'Til you get the baby talk
Remember, little man, it takes time
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
'Til you're walkin' down the aisle
Remember, little man, it takes time
Verse 5
It takes time
To make the coffee percolate
It takes time
To get your gal to set the date
From the first moonlight walk
'Til you get the baby talk
Remember, little man, it takes time
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
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
'Til you're walkin' down the aisle
Remember, little man it takes time
