Lyrics:Betty Comden ,Adolph Green Music:Leonard Bernstein
The song was publishe 1944.
The musical introduced several popular and classic songs, among them "New York, New York", "Lonely Town", "I Can Cook, Too" (for which Bernstein also wrote the lyrics), and "Some Other Time". The story concerns three American sailors on a 24-hour shore leave in New York City during wartime 1944. Each of the three sailors meets and quickly connects with a woman.
On the Town was first produced on Broadway in 1944 and was made into a film in 1949, although the film replaced all but three of the original Broadway songs with Hollywood-written substitutes. The show has enjoyed a number of major revivals. The musical integrates dance into its storytelling: Robbins made a number of ballets and extended dance sequences for the show, including the "Imaginary Coney Island" ballet.
Where has the time all gone to? Haven't done half the things we want to Oh, well We'll catch up some other time
This day was just a token Too many words are still unspoken Oh, well We'll catch up some other time
Just when the fun is starting Comes the time for parting But let's be glad for what we had And what's to come
There's so much more embracing Still to be done but time is racing Oh, well We'll catch up some other time.
