Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms

“You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-
confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.”


 - Douglas MacArthur
(26 Jan 1880 - 05 Apr 1964)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   All this week leading up to St. Patrick's Day, we'll be celebrating with Irish songs.

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdM1zh7BmVI - Stan McLarsen

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBmBCpPO4jk&feature=related - John McDermott (Ballykissangel)

BONUS #3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtCNnyxlJt0&feature=related - A Capella Women's Choir


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Moore:

"The song Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms is often used in a famous gag in a number of Warner Brothers cartoons, usually involving a piano or Xylophone rigged to explode when a certain note is played. The hero, typically Bugs Bunny, tries to play the melody line of the song, but always misses the rigged note (C above middle C). The villain or rival, finally exasperated, pushes the hero aside and plays the song himself, striking the correct note and blowing himself up. In one instance, however, the protagonist plays the melody on a xylophone and, upon striking the rigged note, the antagonist explodes in an 'old gag, new twist.' "

Believe Me If All Those Enduring Young Charms

Words by Thomas Moore
(28 May 1779 - 25 Feb 1852)
Melody: Traditional


Believe me, if all those endearing young charms
Which I gaze on so fondly today
Were to change by tomorrow and fleet in my arms
Like fairy gifts fading away.
Thou wouldst still be adored as this moment thou art
Let thy loveliness fade as it will
And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart
Would entwine itself verdantly still.

It is not while beauty and youth are thine own
And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear
That the fervor and faith of a soul can be known
To which time will but make thee more dear.
No, the heart that has truly loved never forgets
But as truly loves on to the close
As
the sunflower turns to her God when he sets
The same look which she turned when she rose.
