The World Is for the Young

This song is by Herman's Hermits and appears on the movie soundtrack Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter (1968).

Gloria:
I was looking in the mirror last night
My grey hair turned to black
I was looking in the mirror last night
And pleasant memories came back
I remember the time when I was seventeen
And all the things that I wanted to do
The world was new

Tulip:
The world is for the young
C'mon, we're on our way
It's a wonderful place
But when we done what we're going to do
Then we'll have changed it's face

Mr Brown:
Searching through some papers one day
A sweet scent filled the air
It came from the letter I found
And a lock of dark hair

It belonged to a girl who was in love with me
And she written that without me, she'd die
Mrs Brown: I wonder why?

Mrs Brown:
Looking through an album last night
I came acrossed a snap
That showed a handsome youth
With a girl sitting on his lap

"Valentino?" I thought, with his sleeked black hair
And Mary Pigford was on his knee
But it was me!

Mr and Mrs:
The world is for the young
But they'll soon find out
When they come to explore
The strange new lands of expirience
But we've been there before

Mr:
Trying to recapture the past
Only makes me regret
The passing of an age and all the people that I've met

Gloria:
A ride on a tram on the upper deck
With a boy with a Fairbanks moustache
We were so rash

All:
The world is for the young
It was always so

Mr, Mrs, Gloria:
It's not ours anymore
But, they'll find out when they follow us
'Cause we've been there before
