Hello, Young Lovers

Hello, Young Lovers
music by Richard Rodgers
lyric by Oscar Hammerstein II

When I think of Tom I think about a night when the earth smelled of summer
And the sky was streaked with white,
And the soft mist of England was sleeping on a hill---
I remember this, and I always will...
There are new lovers now on the same silent hill,
Looking on the same blue sea and I know Tom and I are part of them all,
And they're all a part of Tom and me...

Hello, young lovers whoever you are, I hope your troubles are few.
All my good wishes go with you tonight---I've been in love like you.
Be brave, young lovers, and follow your star,Be brave and faithful and true,
Cling very close to each other tonight---I've been in love like you.

I know how it feels to have wings on your heels,
And fly down the street in a trance.
You fly down the street on the chance that you'll meet,
And you meet, not really by chance.

Don't cry, young lovers, whatever you do, don't cry because I'm alone;
All of my memories are happy tonight, I've had a love of my own,
I had a love of my own, like yours---I've had a love of my own.
