もうたまらない曲です。
69年に発表され、71年に映画『小さな恋のメロディ』のサウンドトラックとなりました。この曲を聴くと、あの初々しい芽吹いたばかりのマークレスターとトレーシーハイドのラブラブな映像が鮮明に浮かび上がってきます^^

When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall,
We used to love while others used to play.
Don’t ask me why, but time has passed us by,
Some one else moved in from far away.

[Chorus:]
Now we are tall, and Christmas trees are small,
And you don’t ask the time of day.
But you and I, our love will never die,
But guess we’ll cry come first of May.

The apple tree that grew for you and me,
I watched the apples falling one by one.
And I recall the moment of them all,
The day I kissed your cheek and you were gone.

(Chorus…)

When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall,
Do do do do do do do do do…
Don’t ask me why, but time has passed us by,
Some one else moved in from far away.
