When I Get Too Old To Dream

by Sigmund Romberg and Oscar Hammerstein II

We have been gay
Going our way
Life has been beautiful
We have been young
After you've gone
Life will go on
Like an old song we have sung.

When I grow too old to dream
I'll have you to remember
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.

"When I Grow Too Old to Dream" is a popular song with music by Sigmund Romberg and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, published in 1934.
