(Refrain:)

Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine;
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
'Ere I forget all the joy that is mine today.

I'll be a dandy and I'll be a rover,
You'll know who I am by the song that I sing.
I'll feast at your table, I'll sleep in your clover,
Who cares what tomorrow may bring.

(Refrain with key change)

Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine;
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
'Ere I forget all the joy that is mine today.

I can't be contented with yesterday's glories,
I can't live on promises winter to spring.
Today is my moment and now is my story -
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing.

(Refrain - Start Softly, last 2 lines louder)

Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine;
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
'Ere I forget all the joy that is mine today.
