Just In Time
Betty Comden & Adolph Green (w), Jule Styne (m)
Bells Are Ringing, 1956
I was resting comfortably
Face down in the gutter,
Life was serene, I knew where I was at.
"There's no hope for him,"
My dearest friends would mutter.
I was something dragged in by the cat.
Just in time,
I found you just in time,
Before you came,
my time was running low;
I was lost,
The losing dice were tossed,
By bridges all were crossed,
nowhere to go.
Now you're here,
And now I know just where I'm going;
No more doubt or fear, I've found my way,
For love came just in time,
You found me just in time
And changed my lonely life that lovely day.
