Nino Rota

"What is a Youth"

What is a youth?
Impetuous fire
What is a maid?
Ice and desire
The world wags on

A rose will bloom
It then will fade
So does a youth
So does the fairest maid

Comes a time when one sweet smile
Has it's season for awhile
Then love's in love with me

Some may think only to marry
Others will tease and tarry
Mine is the very best parry
Cupid he rules us all

Caper the caper and sing me the song
Death will come soon to hush us along
Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall
Love is a pass-time that never will pall
Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall
Cupid he rules us all

What is a youth?
Impetuous fire
What is a maid?
Ice and desire
The world wags on

A rose will bloom
It then will fade
So does a youth
So does the fairest maid
