"It Only Takes A Moment"

[CORNELIUS, spoken]
I didn't fall in love with Mrs. Irene Malloy, of this city in just an evening... an hour! Even that's too long! What's less than a minute?

[MINNIE, spoken]
A second!

[CORNELIUS, spoken]
Less than that!

[MINNIE, spoken]
A.... a moment!

[CORNELIUS, spoken]
That's it! I'll go slowly so you can get it all down

(sung)
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

[COURT CLERK]
I missed a few words back there, Mr. Hackl. Right after "it only."

[COMPANY]
Takes a moment
But his arms felt sure and strong
It only takes a moment

[IRENE]
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

[IRENE]
And we'll recall when time runs out

[CORNELIUS & IRENE]
That it only took a moment
To be loved a whole life long
