    the lyrics

    Hi,
    There's a sentence in the song 'where have all the flowers gone':
    'Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?'
    I don't understand 'long time passing'; why not 'long time passes'?

    Many thanks

    Surely because long time is being passed at this very moment.
