I Didn't Know What Time It Was lyrics

Once I was young --
Yesterday, perhaps --
Danced with jim and paul
And kissed some other chaps.

Once I was young,
But never was naive.
I thought I had a trick or two
Up my imaginary sleeve.

And now I know I was naive.

I didnt know what time it was
Then I met you.
Oh, what a lovely time it was,
How sublime it was too!

I didnt know what day it was
You held my hand.
Warm like the month of may it was,
And Ill say it was grand.

Grand to be alive, to be young,
To be mad, to be yours alone!
Grand to see your face, feel your touch,
Hear your voice say Im all your own.

I didnt know what year it was
Life was no prize.
I wanted love and here it was
Shining out of your eyes.

Im wise,
And I know what time it is now.

Grand to be alive, to be young,
To be mad, to be yours alone!
Grand to see your face, feel your touch,
Hear your voice say Im all your own.

I didnt know what year it was
Life was no prize.
I wanted love and here it was
Shining out of your eyes.

Im wise,
And I know what time it is now.
