When the World Was Young
Ah, the apple trees
Blossoms in the breeze
That we walked among
Lying in the hay
Games we used to play
While the rounds were sung
Only yesterday
When the world was young

While sitting around we often recall
The life of the year, the night of them all
For all of the noise, the talk and the smoke
I'm good for a laugh, a drink or a joke
I walk in a room, a party or ball
There's laughter and lights and wine for us all
And beautiful girls all put to [Incomprehensible]
But often my eyes see a different shine

Ah, the apple trees
Sunlit memories
Where the hammock swung
On our backs we'd lie
Looking at the sky
Till the stars were strung
Only last July when the world was young

When the world was young
