I love the movie, and I love the song independently. That's appropriate, since the song is actually several years older.

Yet, many people don't know the entire song. Even when sung as a performance, rather than as part of _Casablanca_ singers often omit the first part. So here's the entire set of lyrics:

Enjoy.

I love the song, but have a quibble with some singers' versions.

The opening lyrics are supposed to be:

This day and age we're living in
Gives cause for apprehension
With speed and new invention
And things like fourth dimension.

Yet we get a trifle weary
With Mr. Einstein's theory.
So we must get down to earth at times
Relax relieve the tension

And no matter what the progress
Or what may yet be proved
The simple facts of life are such
They cannot be removed.

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.


And so on. Yet some singers say "And things like _third_ dimension."

That makes no sense in the context of the song. Which actually mentions Einstein in the next line!
