Ethel Waters — There'll Be Some Changes Made lyrics

They say don't change the old for the new;
But I've found out that this will never do;
When you grow old, you don't last long,
You're just here, my honey, then you're gone;
I loved a man for many years gone by,
I thought his love for me would never die;
He made a change and said I would not do,
So now I'm going to make some changes, too.

Why, there's a change in the weather, there's a change in the sea,
So from now on there'll be a change in me,
My walk will be be different, my talk, and my name,
Nothing about me's going to be the same;
I'm gonna change my long tall one for a little short 'n fat,
I'm gonna change my number that I'm living at;
Because nobody wants you when you're old and gray.
There's gonna be some changes made today,
There'll be some changes made.

Why, there's a change in the weather, there's a change in the sea,
So from now on there'll be a change in me,
Why, my walk will be be different, and my talk, and my name,
Nothing about me gonna be the same;
I'm gonna change my way of living, and that ain't no shock,
Why, I'm thinking of changin' the way I gotta set my clock,
Because nobody wants you when you're old and gray.
There's gonna be some changes made today,
There'll be some changes made.
