about

A rewrite of Tom Adair's 1940 lyrics to reflect the year 2020. Hopefully this version will be just as timeless as the original that had references to the Roosevelts and Greta Garbo...

lyrics

Ever since my heart took such a tumble
I've wondered if your love for me would last
When landmarks fall and institutions crumble
Will it be just a memory of the past?

When love no longer conquers all,
When winter doesn’t follow fall
Instead of text, we’d rather call....
will you still be mine?

When terms of service are one page,
healthcare for all is all the rage
When women earn an equal wage,
Will you still be mine?

When fondest memories are not so fleeting,
when handshakes are once more a normal greeting,

When we can fold a fitted sheet,
When Mozart’s requiem’s complete
When Donald Trump admits defeat,
Will you still be mine?

When CNN breaks no more news
When Bezos finally pays his dues
When anybody likes Ted Cruz,
Will you still be mine?

When TikTok trends last years or more
When all the internet's a bore
When climate change can't be ignored
Will you still be mine?

When we no longer feel so isolated
When anti vaxxers get inoculated

When art can be a livelihood,
when mysteries all are understood
When jazz like this is dead for good,
Will you still be mine?
