News flash, honey
film at ten
we're over that rainbow
in kansas again
yesterday's done
the parade's gone by
and nobody cares what we do
but you and i

We're passé
we take the time to forget
our clothes aren't trendy but
we don't fret
baby we're so passé

We're passé
our gate is patient and slow
we cherish the world and we
let it go
terribly au passé

And the night and the stars
are ours, too good to refuse
a couple of friends
divested of trends
we choose
what we lose

We're passé
a state of freedom and grace
without any need for a
pretty face
face it we're tré passé

And the night and the stars
are ours a kingdom so vast
a couple of chums
content with what comes
the past
doesn't last

We're passé
retired resigned but not sad
for all we've been thru
we ain't half bad
despite remarks from some
who only wishes for
what we've had
darling we're so passé
but I wouldn't have it
any other way

Newsflash, honey…
