When I Grow Too Old to Dream

I have always been amazed at the way an ordinary observer lends so much more
credence and attaches so much more importance to waking events than to those
occurring in dreams.... Man... is above all the plaything of his memory.”

- André Breton,
Manifesto of Surrealism,” 1924
(09 Feb 1896 - 28 Sept 1966)

I always wear roller skates when I ride my bicycle. The more wheels the better, and that's what makes me a better lover. You know you want to go for a spin. I'll bring the record player, if you bring 1982 and her little sister, Elton John.”

When I Grow Too Old to Dream

Lyrics by
Oscar Hammerstein II (12 July 1895 – 23 Aug 1960)

Music by Sigmund Romberg (29 July 1887 – 09 Nov 1951), 1934
From the 1935 movie 'The Night Is Young'


We have been gay, going our way
Life has been beautiful, we have been young
After you've gone, life will go on
Like an old song we have sung

When I grow too old to dream
I'll have you to remember
When I grow too old to dream
Your love will live in my heart

So, kiss me my sweet
And so let us part
And when I grow too old to dream
That kiss will live in my heart

And when I grow too old to dream
Your love will live in my heart
