Darling, I am growing old,
Silver threads among the gold,
Shine upon my brow today;
Life is fading fast away;
But my darling, you will be, will be
Always young and fair to me,
Yes! my darling, you will be
Always young and fair to me.
Chorus:
Darling, I am growing, growing old,
Silver threads among the gold,
Shine upon my brow today;
Life is fading fast away.
Love can never more grow old,
Locks may lose their brown and gold;
Cheeks may fade and hollow grow,
But the hearts that love will know
Never, never winter’s frost and chill:
Summer warmth is in them still –
Never winter’s frost and chill,
Summer warmth is in them still.
Chorus:

When your hair is silver white,
And your cheeks no longer bright,
With the roses of the May;
I will kiss your lips and say
Oh! my darling, mine alone, alone
You have never older grown,
Yes! my darling, mine alone, alone
You have never older grown,
Chorus:
Love is always young and fair,
What to us is silver hair,
Faded cheeks, or steps grown slow,
To the heart that beats below?
Since I kissed you mine alone, alone,
You have never older grown –
Since I kissed you mine alone, alone,
You have never older grown.
