y - It Only Takes a Moment Lyrics

"It Only Takes a Moment" is a song from Hello, Dolly! performed by Gavin Creel (Cornelius) and Company.

CORNELIUS
It only takes a moment
For your eyes to meet and then
Your heart knows in a moment
You will never be alone again

I held her for an instant
But my arms felt sure and strong
It only takes a moment
To be loved a whole life long...

CLERK
I missed a few words back there, Mr Jackl.
Right after 'it only'--

ALL
[in docket]
...Takes a moment!
For your eyes to meet and then
Your heart knows in a moment
You will never be alone again

He held her for an instant
But his arms felt sure and strong
It only takes a moment--

MRS. MOLLOY
He held me for an instant
But his arms felt safe and strong
It only takes a moment
To be loved a whole life long

CORNELIUS
And that is all
That love's about

MRS. MOLLOY
And we'll recall when time runs out

BOTH
That it only took a moment
To be loved a whole life long!
