The Lyrics

Captain Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille are getting a divorce due to Daryl's neurological disorder and other health problems. They had been together for almost 40 years. A shame...
Love, love won’t keep us together
It’s been 40 years later
Road singin‘ for far too long, something’s gone wrong
Don't mess around, you’re not very strong

Must stop, 'cause I can’t take care of you
Stop, neurological bad news
It breaks my heart that love didn’t last forever

You (you, got so screwed) can’t play the keys now (you, got so screwed)
I’ve gotta set ya free now (bad news)
With these symptoms hangin‘ around, bringin’ you down
It breaks my heart and I have these break-downs

Must stop (stop, stop) cause I can’t take care of you (horrible news)
Stop (stop, stop) All the medical reviews (and the worst is true)
It breaks my heart that love didn’t last forever, and ever

Old and pitiful, soon one day your mind'll be gone
And then when your mind turns off, how will I still go on???
You‘re ill, You‘re ill, You‘re ill, Shame we didn’t last forever
Love won’t keep us together
I said it before and I'll say it again
All good things must come to an end
I miss ya now and know where we’ve been

Must stop (stop, stop) cause I can’t take care of you (horrible news)
Stop (stop, stop) All the medical reviews (and the worst is true)
It breaks my heart that love didn’t last forever
and ever (a break-up? Thought never!)
You’re ill (severed), You’re ill (severed), You’re ill (severed), You’re ill (cut-off)

Must stop (stop, stop) cause I can’t take care of you (horrible news)
Stop (stop, stop) All the medical reviews (and the worst is true)
It breaks my heart that love didn’t last forever
and ever (a break-up? Thought never!)
You’re ill (severed), You’re ill (severed), You’re ill (severed), You’re ill (cut-off)

We had a good thing…

(Now gone, gone, gone, gone, Now gone, gone, gone, gone, Just gone, gone, gone , gone)
(Now gone, gone, gone, gone, Just gone, gone, gone, gone)

I gave you all 5's because I actually anticipated the spoofing of this topic to THIS SONG. Men and women do not know how to remain in love anymore. Sad!

Sad about the Captain's health though, music was his life and most of it was spent with Toni on the road spanning decades. Thnx for your vote too :)
