MONOLOGUE: I'll be loving you, babe, only always. With a real crazy love that's
true always. When these dreams that you've planned.. need a little helpin' hand,
well, say, honey, I'll understand always. Yeah, always! 'cause things may not be
fair, always. But that's exactly when I'm gonna be true always. Not for just sixty
minutes, not for twenty-four hours, not even for a whole darned YEAR, three
hundred and sixty-five days, but I mean always!!
Things may not be fair always
That's when I'll be there always
Not for just an hour
And not for just a day
Not for just a year but always
