Verse 1:

(piano):

     D                         F#m/C#
When I was small and Christmas trees were tall

We used to love while others used to play

(strings enter)

 D                             F#m/C#
Don't ask me why, but time has passed us by
 G                 D             A
Someone else moved in from far away
    G                           D
Now we are tall and Christmas trees are small
    Em                         D    D7
And you don't ask the time of day
     G                         D
But you and I, our love will never die
     Em              G   [1: /A]      D   [1: A (band enters)]
But guess who'll cry   come First of May

Verse 2:

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
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 who'll cry come First of May

Coda:

(piano, acoustic guitar, and strings):

     D                         F#m/C#
When I was small and Christmas trees were tall
G               D            A
Do-do-do-do-do  do-do-do  do-do

(acapella):

Don't ask me why    but time has passed us by
Someone else moved in   from far away [fade]
