Nat King Cole – Sweet Bird Of Youth lyrics

The sweet bird of youth
Soon flies away
And nothing can make him stay

The sweet bird of youth
Sings us his song
To waste precious time is wrong

So come to my arms
We're young but we'll learn
That lips unkissed
Like moments missed
Can never return

How sad is the true
Try that we made
The sweet bird of youth
Flies away

The sweet bird of youth
Flies away
