Searching for the Lyrics to a Philip Green composition, 'When I was Young', recorded in EMI as the B side to Noel Purcell's 'The Filly with the Long black Mane' Also written by Philip Green. This is NOT the Animal's song, nor Charles Aznavour. Can anyone oblige? One part of it goes:
'But now I know
But now I realy know,
Of only one thing I am really very sure:
Love is a Gift, Love is a Gift"

Jean Gabin: But now I know

When I was young and very sure
for everything had a cure
I said: I know, I know, I know, I know

When I was older and more mature
and not so very, very sure
I said: I know, at least I think I know

But now I know, but know I really know
I've only one thing I'm truly very sure
That is, I wish I knew, I wish I knew

When I was young, love was my right
A passing cloud, a pleasant night
Love was my right, and love was my delight

Then, with the passing of the years
Love brought me happiness and tears
Love was a pleasure, a priceless treasure

But know I know, but know I really know
I've only one thing I am truly very sure
Love is a gift, love is a gift

Now in the September of my life
Now I can remember all my life
All the joy and sorrows of my life
All the fine tomorrows of my life

When I was young, I met my memories
If thousand memories to live with evermore
Then, later on, I had my memories
I lived my memories a thousand times or more

But know I know, but know I really know
In spite of all I've learned or even hoped to learn
One simple truth is very, very clear to me:
I'll never know, I'll never know!

Many Thanks, Reinhard - Perfect!

Noel had a different last verse:

But now I know, but now I really know,
If I have Hope, and something worth hoping for,
One hope is worth a thousand memories
Now THIS I Know, THIS I know.

I'm biased, I think his ending is better!

thanks again.

When I Was Young
Eric Burdon & The Animals

The rooms were so much colder then.
My father was a soldier then.
And times were very hard.
When I was young.

When I was young.
I smoked my first cigarette at ten.
And for girls, I had a great yen.
When I was young.

When I was young it was more important.
Pain more painful, the laughter much louder, yeah.
When I was young.

When I was young.
I met my first love at thirteen.
She was brown, and I was pretty green.
And I learned quite a lot.
When I was young.
When I was young.

When I was young it was more important.
Pain more painful, laughter much louder, yeah.
When I was young.

When I was young.
My faith was so much stronger then.
I believed in fellow men.
And I was so much older then.
When I was young.
When I was young.
When I was young.
When I was young.
When I was young.
