At My Age

(Kander-Ebb)


Can you remember
When you were my age
That mixture of pleasure and pain?
Can you remember
Caring for someone
And praying it wasn't in vain?

You tell me at my age
To look the field over
Why love one particular one?

But try to remember
When you were my age
And tell me what you would have done?

Can you remember
When you were my age
That someone who mattered to you?
Maybe he'd leave you
Could be he'd hurt you
But no word of warning would do

You tell me at my age
It's foolish to gamble
Suppose he's unwilling to stay

But try to remember
When you were my age
Yes, try to remember
And if you remember
Then maybe you'll see things my way
