Blame It On My Youth

Blame It On My Youth
music by Oscar Levant (left)
lyric by Edward Heyman

You were my adored one then you became the bored one
And I was like a toy that brought you joy one day.
A broken toy that you preferred to throw away...

If I expected love when first we met, blame it on my youth.
If only just for you I did exist, blame it on my youth.
I believed in everything like a child of three.
You meant more than anything, all the world to me...

If you were on my mind both night and day, blame it on my youth.
If I forgot to eat and sleep and pray, blame it on my youth;
And if I cried a little bit when first I learned the truth,
Don't blame it on my heart, blame it on my youth...
