"I Didn't Know What Time It Was" as written by Lorenz Hart and Richard Rodgers....
Once I was young
Yesterday, perhaps
Danced
With Jim and Paul
And kissed
Some other chaps
Once I was young
But never was naive
I thought I had
A trick or two
Up my imaginary sleeve
And now I know
I was naive

I didn't know
What time it was
Then I met you
Oh
What a lovely time it was
How sublime it was too
I didn't know
What time it was
You hold my hand
Warm like the month
Of may it was
And I'll say
It was grand

Grand to be alive
To be young
To be mad
To be yours alone
Grand to see your face
Feel your touch
Hear your voice say
I'm all your own

I didn't know
What time it was
Live was no prize
I wanted love
And here it was
Shining out
Of your eyes
I'm wise
And I know
What time it is now

Once I was old
Twenty years or so
Rather well preserved
The wrinkles didn't show
Once I was old
But not too old for fun
I used to hunt
For little girls
Up my imaginary gun
But now I ain't
For only one

I didn't know
What time it was
Then I met you
Oh
What a lovely time it was
How sublime it was too
I didn't know
What time it was
You hold my hand
Warm like the month
Of may it was
And I'll say
It was grand

Grand to be alive
To be young
To be mad
To be yours alone
Grand to see your face
Feel your touch
Hear your voice say
I'm all your own

I didn't know
What time it was
Live was no prize
I wanted love
And here it was
Shining out
Of your eyes
I'm wise
And I know
What time it is now
