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 the 'morrow shall bring.

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
I can't be contented with yesterday's glory
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

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
