YOU GROW SWEETER AS THE YEARS GO BY
as recorded by Artie Shaw & his Orchestra
(vocal - Helen Forrest)
March 17th 1939
You grow sweeter as the years go by,
You grow sweeter as the twilight fly.
I need never dream of our first kiss
When I know our last one is as sweet as this.
Though September takes the place of June,
In September there's a harvest moon.
Let the leaves start falling, darling, what care I
When you grow sweeter as the years go by?
