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 the youth
So does the fairest maid

Comes the time when one sweet smile
has it's season for awhile
Then love's in love with me.

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

Caper the cape,
but sing me the song,
Death will come soon to hush us along.
Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall
Love is the pastime that never will pall.
Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall
Cupid he reals us all.

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