    There’s one old song for which my heart still listens,
    There’s one old road where still in dreams I rove,
    Love wafts me back, defying time and distance
    Back to the old home road and youth and love.

    I hear one voice where many friends are talking,
    I see one smile where many round me smile,
    I walk with one where many friends are walking,
    With one and with one only all the while.

    I sing one song. To crooning of streams flowing,
    And clean winds blowing, this one song is set,
    I dream one dream, lovely as lilacs growing,
    Along the road I never shall forget.
