I Didnt Know What Time It Was Lyrics

Artist: Benny Goodman

I Didn't Know What Time It Was
Benny Goodman
Words by Lorenz Hart and music by Richard Rodgers.

Introduced by Marcy Westcott and Richard Kollmar in the musical "Too Many
Sung by Lucille Ball, Eddie Bracken, Hal LeRoy and Desi Arnaz in the 1940
film version.
Sung by Frank Sinatra in the 1957 film "Pal Joey."

Once I was young--
Yesterday, perhaps--
Danced with Jim and Paul
And kissed some other chaps.
Once I was young,
But never was naive.
I thought I had a trick or two
Up my imaginary sleeve.
And now I know I was naive.

I didn't know what time it was,
Then I met you.
Oh, what a lovely time it was,
How sublime it was too!
I didn't know what time it was,
You held my hand.
Warm like the month of May it was,
And I'll say it was grand.
Grand to be alive, to be young,
To be mad, to be yours alone!
Grand to see your face, feel your touch,
Hear your voice say I'm all your own.
I didn't know what time it was,
Life was no prize.
I wanted love and here it was
Shining out of your eyes.
I'm wise,
And I know what time it is now.

Once I was old--
Twenty years or so--
Rather well preserved,
The wrinkles didn't show.
Once I ws old,
But not too old for fun.
I used to hunt for little girls
Up my imaginary gun.
But now I aim for only one!

(Repeat Refrain)
