From the operetta “Gypsy Baron”

Adapted by Dimitri Tiomkin for the film “The Great Waltz”
English lyrics for the film by Oscar Hammerstein II

One day when we were young /
One won-der-ful mor-ning in May /
You told me / you loved me /
When we were young one day /

Sweet songs of spring were sung /
And mu-sic was ne-ver so gay /
You told me / you loved me /
When we were young one day /

You told me / you loved me /
And held me close to your heart /
We laughed then / we cried then /
Then came the ti-ime to part /

When songs of spring are sung /
Re-mem-ber that mor-ning in May /
Re-mem-ber / you loved me /
When we were young one day!

We laughed then / we cried then /
Then came the ti-ime to part /

When songs of spring are sung /
Re-mem-ber that mor-ning in May
Re-mem-ber / you loved me /
When we were young one day!
