Verse 1
When the honeymoon is over
and the pieces packed away,
pictures hung in silver frames
with tokens of the day.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
the days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
and two hearts beat together
like a drum.

Verse 2
When the honeymoon is over
and the relatives all gone,
everything they came to say
still lingers on and on.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
the days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
and two hearts beat together
like a drum.

Middle 8
Here at last
the die is cast,
your single days
are long, long passed.

Verse 3
When the honeymoon is over
and reality kicks in,
take one look at each other,
let something new begin.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
the days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
and two hearts beat together
like a drum.
