The Younger Generation

The Younger Generation

(Noel Coward)

Ray Noble & his New Mayfair Dance Orchestra


Age calls the tune, youth's over soon
That is the natural law
There's a younger generation
Knock, knock, knocking at the door

Why sit and fret, vainly regret
Things that have gone before
There's a younger generation
Knock, knock, knocking at the door

Though the world is well lost for love dreams
There's wisdom above dreams
To compensate mothers and wives
When the joys of youth have passed them
This should last them all their lives

I've had my fun, all that is done
Why should I sigh for more
There's a younger generation
Knock, knock, knocking at the door
