It isn't by chance I happen to be
a boulevardier and the toast of Paris
Every night I'm the belle of the ball
but how many times do I stop and recall

Ah, the apple trees
blossoms in the breeze
that we walked among
Lying in the hay
games we used to play
while the rounds were sung
Only yesterday,
when the world was young.

Wherever I go they mention my name
and that in itself is some sort of fame
There's laughter and music and glamour and wine
but often my eyes see a different shine

Ah, the apple trees
sunlit memories where the hammock swung
and on our back's we'd lie
looking at the sky
till the stars were strung
Only last July,
when the world was young.

Just a dream ago,
when the world was young.
