Ere I forget all the joys that are mine today


The New Christy Minstrels sing Today.

Lyrics
Song written by Randy Sparks
Recorded by The New Christy Minstrels in 1964.

Today while the blossom still clings 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 joys that are 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 lie in your clover
I’ll laugh and I’ll cry and I’ll sing

Today while the blossom still clings 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 joys that are mine today

I can’t be contented with yesterday’s glories
I can’t live on promises winter to spring
This is my moment and now is my story
Who cares what tomorrow will bring

Today while the blossom still clings 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 joys that are mine today
