Verse:
We have been gay, go - ing our way,
Life has been beau - ti - ful, we have been young.
Af - ter you've gone, life will go on,
Like an old song we have sung.
 
Chorus:
When I grow too old to dream,
I'll have you to re - mem - ber.
When I grow too old to dream,
Your love will live in my heart.
So kiss me my sweet,
And so let us part,
And when I grow too old to dream,
That kiss will live in my heart.
