"Speak Low" as written by Ogden Nash and Kurt Weill....
Time is so old and love so brief
Love is pure gold and time a thief

Speak low when you speak love
Our summer's day withers away too soon, too soon
Speak low when you speak love
Our moment is swift like ships adrift
We sail apart too soon

Speak low when you speak love
Love is a spark, lost in the dark too soon, too soon
I feel that wherever I go that tomorrow is near
Tomorrow is here and always too soon

Time is so old and love so brief
Love is pure gold and time a thief

We're late, darling, we're late
The curtain descends, everything ends too soon, too soon
I wait, darling, I wait
Will you speak low to me, speak love to me?
Speak low to me and soon
Speak low, speak low
Speak love
