Caterina Valente — This Is All I Ask lyrics

As I approach the prime of my life,
I find I have the time of my life
Learning to enjoy at my leisure
All the simple pleasures
And so I happily concede
That this is all I ask,
This is all I need

Soft spoken men
Speak a little softer when you speak... to me
Lingering sunsets,
Stay a little longer with the lonely sea
Children everywhere,
When you shoot at bad men... shoot at me
Take me to that strange... enchanted land
Grown-ups seldom understand

Wandering rainbows,
Leave a bit of color for my heart... to own
Stars in the sky,
Make my wish come true... before the night... has flown
And let the music play as long
As there's a song to sing
And I will stay younger... than Spring

And let the music play as long
As there's a song... to sing
And I will stay younger... than Spring
