Time Will Tell (1966)

Musique - Michel Polnareff Paroles - Keith Reid


Note here about the
writing and release
of this song, which
considerably predates
the formation
of Procol Harum.

Unusual structure
for a 1966 pop tune. .

The lines in purple were
delivered in falsetto
on the original recording
by Michel Polnareff.

Curiously good record!

You say that you're my little girl
You say that you're my little girl

What to do, I don't know
If you tell the truth or no
I remember once before
When I came, you closed the door


You say that you're my little girl
You say that you're my little girl

If I go you say you'll pine
If I stay you're mine, mine, mine
Though you say you will care for me
Time must pass for me to see


You say that you're my little girl
You say that you're my little girl

There may be a chance for us
If in you I place my trust
It  will take some little time
But I'll know you're mine, mine, mine

You must stay and I must go
When we meet then will you know
In your mind if we can be?
Time will tell and we will see
