Words & Music by Sheldon Harnick & Jerry Bock
From the musical "Fiddler on the Roof", 1964
Performed by Topol in the movie of the same name


Em            B7           Em
Is this the little girl I carried?

Em           B7            Em     E7
Is this the little boy at play?

Am         E7            Am
I don't remember growing older --

F#   F#7  B7
When did they?

Em            B7         Em
When did she get to be a beauty?

 Em          B7           Em    E7
When did he grow to be so tall?

 Am        E7             Am  F#7   B7
Wasn't it yesterday when they were small?


(Refrain:)

Em   Am6    Em    B7    Em    Am6   Em     B7       
  Sun-rise,   sun-set,    sun-rise,   sun-set,

Em      Am6   Em   Am6  Em   E7
Swiftly       flow the days;

Am7              D7          Gmaj7 G6
Seedlings turn overnight to sun- flow'rs,

F#m7        B7         Em7
Blossoming even as we gaze.


Em   Am6    Em    B7    Em    Am6   Em     B7       
  Sun-rise,   sun-set,    sun-rise,   sun-set,

Em   Am6  Em    Am6   Em   E7
Swiftly     fly the years;

Am7         D7        Gmaj7 G6
One season following anoth- er,

Am6        B7      B+         Em
Laden with hap-pi-ness...and tears.

Now is the little boy a bridegroom,
Now is the little girl a bride;
Under the canopy I see them, side by side.
Place the gold ring upon her finger,
Drink the sweet wine and break the glass -
Soon the full circle will have come to pass.


(Repeat Refrain)
