Starting all over again is gonna be rough, so rough But we're gonna make it (oh yeah) Starting all over as friends is gonna be tough, on us But we gotta face it
We lost what we had, that's what hurt us so bad (oh yeah) It set us back a thousand years But we're gonna make it up, though I know it's gonna be rough To erase all the hurt and tears
Starting all over again is gonna be hard But I pray that the love will help us make it (yeah) Starting all over again is gonna be slow But we, we both know that we can make it
We gotta take life as it comes, yeah And never, never, never fuss about who's right or wrong It's an uphill climb (oh, yes, it is) To the finish line But we're gonna try Just one more time
Starting all over again is gonna be rough, for us But we're gonna make it, yeah Starting all over as friends is gonna be rough, on us (on us) But we gotta face it (yeah)
Starting all over again is gonna be hard 'Cause with the faith of love we gonna make it (oh, yes we will, darlin') Starting all over again is gonna be slow (but, baby, I know, I know, I know, I know) We both know that we can make it (oh, yes, we can)
Starting all over again is gonna be rough

Michael G. from Anaheim, CaHi Guy's For the record we need to let the public know the names of Mel & Tim's band members, the music of The Duo: The MT3 was the power trio of the Rythym Section, consisting of: Ty Woods on Guitar.....Steve Murray on Bass...&...Michael Grimes on Drums. The two guys stacking all of the musical layers on top were Boo Boo and Benny Wilson, both on Keyboards. Fellows, little did we know, all those years ago we were making musical history. I'm proud to have been one of you. Lots of love, Sincerely, Michael G. alias Butter-Roll, The Drummer.

Boo Boo from St. Louis, MoI can verify the foregoing from Steve because we played togeher as part of M&T's rode band. I was the keyboard player. Hey, Steve remember London?
Stephen Murray from St. Louis, MoI forgot to mention that Tim died in 1986. Mel still lives in St. Louis, having recently retired from the Bi-State Development Corp. where he was a bus driver after his career in music. He is currently a Djay for various events and functions.
Stephen Murray from St. Louis, MoThanks, Brad for the info. Actually Mel and Tim endured only a one-year hiatus. I was the bass player in the group and we continued working.
