When We Were Young We dove off our boat and Swam in the green sea, We read out loud volumes Of pure poetry: We climbed the high mountain And touched the blue sky, Waved at the wild geese as They went speeding by, When we were young, dear Ann, When we were young. We picked the sweet cherries That grew on the trees, We danced with the daffodils, Stirred by the breeze; We sang with the nightingale, Cooed with the dove, Slept 'neath the purple stars, So much in love, When we were young, dear Ann, When we were young. We drank in the beauty of The moon's pale beams; We dismissed the scorners And followed our dreams. God gave us a baby, Fond wishes came true. A child of rare beauty, An image of you, When we were young, dear Ann, When we were young.
