It's A KV/LES Sign Of The Times

from a different part of the 60's then Bob Dylan's
"A Sign of the Times" was a 1966 single by Petula Clark. Written by Tony Hatch, the uptempo pop number juxtaposed Clark's driving vocals with a powerful brass section. She introduced the tune on the Ed Sullivan Show on February 27, 1966.
The song indicated a burgeoning trend toward tempo in medlodic music, reaching #2 on Billboard's easy listening chart, as opposed to its #11 position on the Hot 100. In the late 1990s "A Sign of the Times" reached an entirely new audience in the United States when Clark's recording was featured in a series of popular Target Department Store commercials.

It's a sign of the times
That your love for me is getting so much stronger
It's a sign of the times
And I know that I won't have to wait much longer
You've changed a lot somehow from the one I used to know-oh-oh
For when you hold me now it feels like you never want to let me go
It's a sign of the times
That you call me up whenever you feel lonely
It's a sign of the times
That you tell your friends that I'm your one and only
I'll never understand the way you treated me-ee-ee
But when I hold your hand I know you couldn't be the way you used to be
refrain
Maybe my lucky star at last decided to shine
Maybe somebody knows how long I've waited to make you mine, mm, mm, mm
I'll never understand the way you treated me-ee-ee
But when I hold your hand I know you couldn't be the way you used to be
refrain
Maybe my lucky star at last decided to shine
Maybe somebody knows how long I've waited to make you mine, mm, mm, mm
It's a sign of the times
That you kiss me now as if you really mean it
It's a sign of the times
And a year ago I never could have seen it
Don't ever change your mind and take your love away-ay-ay
Just leave the past behind and, baby, only think of how it is today
It's a sign of the ti-imes
It's a sign of the ti-i-i-i-imes
It's a sign of the times
It's a sign of the ti-i-i-i-imes
