Why Can't This Be Decent English?

Speaking of lyrical redundancies, I just heard Sammy Hagar get off a doozy in Van Hagar's "Why Can't This Be Love." After singing "Only fools rush in," he goes for a clean sweep of cliches by adding, "Only time will tell if we stand the test of time."

I guess it's hard to argue with that. It's not as if distance will tell if you stand the test of time.
