TEVYE
Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?


GOLDE
I don't remember getting older
When did they?


TEVYE
When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be this tall?


GOLDE
Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?


TEVYE & MEN
Sunrise, sunset,
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedling turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze


GOLDE & WOMEN
Sunrise, sunset,
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and cheers


TEVYE
What word of wisdom can I give them?
How can I help to ease their ways?


GOLDE
Now they must learn from one another
Day by day


PERCHIK
They look so natural together


HODEL
Just like two newlyweds should be


PERCHIK & HODEL
Is there a canopy in store for me?


CHORUS
Sunrise, sunset,
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedling turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze


Sunrise, sunset,
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and cheers...
