Nelson Eddy originally made this popular in 1935 and it was revived by Vera Lynn during World War II in tribute to the young soldiers going to war

We have been gay, going our way
Life has been beautiful, we have been young
After you've gone, life will go on
Like an old song we have sung

When I grow too old to dream
I'll have you to remember
When I grow too old to dream
Your love will live in my heart
So ... kiss me my sweet
And so let us part ...

And, when I grow too old to dream
That kiss will live in my heart
And, when I grow too old to dream
That kiss will live in my heart

So, kiss me my sweet
And so let us part
And when I grow too old to dream
That kiss will live in my heart
