when all the world is young lyrics – donovan

young leaf green, so softly shining
quartz of [?]
rings of coral, beams of lapis
and of alabaster made

when all the world is young
and the secret dance has just begun
and the songs of courting are sung
when all the world is young

cloudless dream and days in yellow
plotted cream and [?]
touch of turquoise, flash of scarlet
costumes silver dance [?]

when all the world is young
and the secret dance has just begun
and the songs of courting are sung
when all the world is young

brace in gold, waist in satin
sent with [?]
copper crown about my temple
green [?] light [?]

when all the world is young
and the secret dance has just begun
and the songs of courting are sung
when all the world is young

young leaf green, so softly shining
quartz of [?]
rings of coral, beams of lapis
and of alabaster made

when all the world is young
and the secret dance has just begun
and the songs of courting are sung
when all the world is young
and the secret dance has just begun
and the songs of courting are sung
when all the world is young
and the secret dance has just begun
and the songs of courting are sung
when all the world is young
