(Sigmund Romberg / Dorothy Donnelly)
Also recorded by:
The Starlite Orchestra.
Down where the Neckar flows swiftly along
Nestles a town that is famous in song
Laughing lads roam through its streets so quaint
No one’s a sinner, much less a saint
Twilight comes stealing and moonlight shines down
Painting with silver old Heidelberg Town
Laughing, they circle their glasses
All night long.
Golden days in the sunshine of our happy youth
Golden days, full of innocence and full of truth
In our hearts we remember them all else above
Golden days, days of youth and love
How we laughed with a gaiety that had no sting
Looking back through memory’s aid
We will know life has nothing sweeter than its springtime
Golden days, when we’re young, Golden days.
