This Is All I Ask

Writer(s): Gordon Jenkins
From The Reprise Collection, Disc 2

As I approach the prime of my life. I find I have the time of my life
Learning to enjoy at my leisure all the simple pleasure
And so I happily concede, this is all I ask, this is all I need
Beautiful girl, walk a little slower when you walk by me
Lingering sunset, stay a little longer with the lonely sea
Children everywhere, when you shoot at bad men, shoot at me
Take me to that strange enchanted land, grownups seldom understand
Wandering rainbows, leave a bit of color for my heart to own
Stars in the sky, make my wish come true before the night has flown
And let the music play as long as there’s a song to sing
Then I will stay younger than spring
