Lyrics

Who would have thought
That one little kiss
Soft and sweet
From the lips of a lovely girl
Would change my life?
But by my life
It will!

After today,
Nothing will be the same again!

After today,
I’ll make my claim to fame
An’ then
The grass will be greener
An’ the air will be cleaner
An’ my life will be serener
Than Heaven knows when!
Heaven knows when!
 
After today,
I shall have bid my fears goodbye!
After today,
I shall have no more tears to cry!
I’ll learn to live with
Laughter to stay
After today!

After today,
Nothin’ will be the way it was!
After today,
I’ll say oh, what a day it was!
My heart will be lighter
An’ my smile will be brighter
An’ I’ll be twice the fighter
That ever I was!
Clever because

After today,
I shall have bid my fears farewell!
After today,
I shall have no more tears to quell!
I’ll learn to live with
Laughter to stay!
After the tears
Comes the laughter
After today!
