What Is A Youth Lyrics


What is a youth lyrics video composed by Nino Rota “Romeo & Juliet” (1968)

 

Romeo and Juliet (1968) – What Is A Youth (Music Video)

 

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 a youth.

So does the fairest maid.

 

Comes a time when one sweet smile

Has it’s season for awhile

Then Love’s in love with me

 

Some may think only to marry.

Others will tease and tarry.

Mine is the very best parry,

Cupid he rules us all.

 

Caper the caper; sing me the song

Death will come soon to hush us along

Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall,

Love is a pass-time that never will pall.

Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall,

Cupid he rules us all.

 

(20 second flute interlude)

 

A rose will bloom, it then will fade.

So does a youth.

So does the fairest maid.
