Lyrics: Betty Comden , Adolph Green Music:Leonard Bernstein
The song was publishe 1944.
On the Town is a musical with music by Leonard Bernstein and book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, based on Jerome Robbins' idea for his 1944 ballet Fancy Free, which he had set to Bernstein's music. 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.
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.
