Tony Bennett - Young And Foolish Lyrics

Once we were foolish children
Playing as children play
Racing through a meadow April bright
Dreaming on a hilltop half the night
Now that we’re growing older
We have no time to play
Now that we’re growing wiser
We are not wise enough to stay

Young and foolish
Why is it wrong to be
Young and foolish?
We haven't long to be
Soon enough the carefree days
The sunlit days go by
Soon enough the bluebird has to fly

We were foolish
One day we fell in love
Now we wonder
What were we dreaming of
Smiling in the sunlight
Laughing in the rain
I wish that we were young and foolish again

    Yet another wonderful performance by Tony Bennett and so glad he included the verse at the beginning.  I have never heard a vocalist come anywhere close to Tony Bennett's wonderful phrasing.

    Yeah, I needed to learn the verse myself, and TB was the first artist I thought to go to. He knows 'where the bones are buried'. A great artist and great man...
