Once we were foolish children Playing as children play Racing through a meadow April bright Dreaming on a hilltop half the night Now that we're growing older

Soon enough the carefree days
The sunlit days go by
Soon enough the bluebird has to fly

We were foolish One day we fell in love
Now we wonder What were we dreaming of Smiling in the sunlight Laughing in the rain
I wish that we were Young and foolish again
 Smiling in the sunlight Laughing in the rain
I wish that we were Young and foolish again
