Once I was young, yesterday, perhaps Danced with Jim and Paul and kissed some other chaps Once I was young, but never was naive I thought I had a trick or two up my imaginary sleeve And now I know I was naive I didn't know what time it was Then I met you Oh, what a lovely time it was How sublime it was too! I didn't know what day it was Then you held my hand Warm like the month of May it was And I'll say it was grand Grand to be alive, to be young To be mad, to be yours alone Grand to see your face, feel your touch Hear your voice say I'm all your own I didn't know what year it was Life was no prize I wanted love and here it was Shining out of your eyes Once I was old, twenty years or so Rather well preserved, the wrinkles didn't show Once I was old, but not too old for fun I used to hunt for little girls up my imaginary gun But now I ain't for only one I'm wise and I know what time it is now I'm wise and I know what time it is now I'm so wise and I know what time it is now ********** As recorded by DORIS DAY: I didn't know what time it was, Then I met you. Oh, what a lovely time it was, How sublime it was too! I didn't know what day it was, You held my hand. Warm like the month of May it was, And I'll say it was grand. Grand to be alive, to be young, To be mad, to be yours alone! Grand to see your face, feel your touch, Hear your voice say I'm all your own. I didn't know what year it was, Life was no prize. I wanted love and here it was Shining out of your eyes. I'm wise, And I know what time it is now. (Orchestral Break) I wanted love and here it was Shining out of your eyes. I'm wise, And I know what time it is now. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - January 2005)
