Description

Bobby Vinton duets with the late George Burns in a song originally recorded in the spoken words style by Orson Welles. This is the story of a young man with a limited vision of the future. One day, an old wise man comes along and shares his wisdom and life experience with the young man, giving him valuable advice on life and what ultimately matters the most. (Read More)..... The curious young man has constantly been asking questions from men of wisdom. However, most of his questions have remained unanswered. But he knows one thing for certain. That life is a cycle. There will be days to remember, full of laughter and tears, after summer, comes winter and so go the years..... The old man leaves him with one concluding statement, "In time, when your young days are over, they'll be someone, sharing their time with you". A big 100th Birthday celebration was planned for the comedian, actor and writer George Burns, to be held at the Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 20th, 1996. When asked whether he would appear at Caesar's Palace on his 100th Birthday he responded, "I'll be there, assuming Caesar's Palace is still there. He did celebrate his 100th Birthday. However he was too ill to leave home. He passed away only 2 months after his Birthday. Lyrics: When we are young age has no meaning I never gave it a second thought until one day along came this old man and this is what he said to me and this is what he said to me I know what it is to be young but you, don't know what it is to be old someday, you'll be saying the same thing time takes away so the story is told I've asked so many questions of the wise men I've met couldn't find all the answers no one has as yet. There'll be days to remember full of laughter and tears after summer, comes winter and so go the years So my friend lets make music together I'll play the old while you sing me the new In time when your young days are over there'll be some one sharing their time with you
