Song lyrics to Today Tomorrow Forever, Lyrics by Mack David, Music by Jerry Livingston, performed by Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, and cast in Sailor Beware
Editor’s note: In Sailor Beware, Dean Martin is singing Today Tomorrow Forever as an audition on a radio show. His pal Jerry Lewis “helps” him, with a chorus of their fellow sailors, singing various replies, trying to get Dean to break up. It goes something like this:
Dean Martin: Today tomorrow forever
Sailors: Ooo ah.
Dean Martin: You are the one girl I love
Sailors: tatatatatatata uuh
Dean Martin: Today …
Dean Martin: Tomorrow …
Dean Martin: Forever …
Dean Martin: As long as stars shine above
Sailors and Jerry Lewis: the stars that shine, the stars that shine.
Dean Martin: This is no mere infatuation
Sailors: 1-2-3-4 we love your voice so sing some more!
Dean Martin: This time it’s real the sweet sensation
Sailors: uuh uuh uuh uuh [with Jerry Lewis clapping like a seal]
Dean Martin: Always and always together
Sailors: ta-ta ta ta ta-ta-ta-ta-ta ta ta)
Dean Martin: That’s how it’s fated to be
Sailors: Boing boing boing boing.
Dean Martin: Today [sailors make popping sounds]
tomorrow [popping sounds]
forever [sailors knock themselves on the head]
You are the one girl for me
Sailors: You are my one love …
