Barbra Streisand - I Didn't Know What Time It Was Lyrics




Once I was young
Yesterday, perhaps
Danced with Jim and Paul
And kissed some other chaps
Once I was young
But never was naive
I thought I had a trick or two
Up my imaginary sleeve
And now I know I was naive

I didn't know what time it was
Then I met you
Oh, what a lovely time it was
How sublime it was too!
I didn't know what time it was
Till you held my hand
Warm like the month of May it was
And I'll say it was grand
Grand to be alive, to be young
To be mad, to be yours alone!
Grand to see your face, feel your touch
Hear your voice say I'm all your own

I didn't know what time it was
My life was no prize
I wanted love and here it was
Shining out of your eyes
I'm wise
And I know what time it is now

Had so grand to be alive, to be young
To be mad, to be yours alone
Grand tosee your face, feel your touch
Hear your voice say I'm yours alone

I didn't know what time it was
Live was no prize
I whanted love and here it was
Shining out of your eyes
I'm wise
And I know what time it is now

I know where now

Barbra Streisand I Didn't Know What Time It Was Comments
  1. Nigel. Brown.

    its not just a song sung........its an event.......as usual fabbo....never be another......

  2. Scott Smith

    Perfect in every way possible. These four solos are simply magical. Her voice is so rich--like molten gold. Love the trumpet, the lushness, and even the "imperfections" in her voice. It has broadened and deepened and just rips my heart out--hopefully yours, too. As Sondhiem said, there is Streisand...and then all the rest.

  3. Scott Smith

    If one had never heard her younger voice one would still be overwhelmed with the beauty of her mature one. I have been a Babsfan since 1968, and have seen her live four times. Her voice connects with all the dopamine secreting cells in my brain--she has sung the soundtrack to my own life. This recording proves that she still has "it". AbFab!!!! And I love the trumpet!!!!

  4. Marie Marcel

    Que c est beau a pleurer

  5. Lars Bøhm

    Some say her Voice is not what it used to be. Then it must have Been f###### awsome because THIS was just pure Amazing

  6. Lewis Breland

    I'm dead AF!

  7. M K

    Just so smooth and incredibly beautiful- i've been listening since 1964 and that voice is ageless

  8. Sean Mace

    I think this is one of her best. Love the duets.

  9. Inga Aloosh

    Pure perfection. And live performance in tour concerts was even better!!

  10. Jesse Mendez

    One of my favorite songs. I even made my own rendition of this, but listening to Barbara I must admit she brings it to a new level. Stop by my page if you would like to hear my take. Thanks

  11. singasong718

    I have to say I've been enjoying the Streisand solos on this album far more than the duets.

    Josh Drayton

    Agree 100%. It should have been a solo effort. The song intros are way too talky and some of the duets are ill-advised.

  12. Shane D.

    Why oh why did I buy the standard version?!?

  13. HFritzson

    She has acquired a silvery quality. She can still be lush but not as exuberantly free as she was once. This is not a criticism. She gets something else going now. I love her voice and her brains.

  14. loum111

    Thanks for posting this.

  15. gdhalla

    That's beautiful! thanks for the treat. Dying to hear Not a Day Goes By...

  16. Jose Peña

    Could you please upload "Not A Day Goes By"? And thank you for sharing these songs. Really means a lot! :)

  17. divolino

    Hi, Alina, firstly, thank so very much for uploading this wonderful piece of music for us to enjoy, as a citizen living in Europe we just have limited means to have the deluxe version of Encore by Barbra. Many are like me can only buy her album through iTune, which missing 4 very important songs in this album. Hence my question is, and i hope you wouldn't find it ofensive, would it be possible for you to upload ' Not A Day Goes By' as well. I am dying to hear how she interprets this song.

  18. theodore braden

    This was just incredible....Barbara must have been "the other woman" once in order to put so much emotion into this

  19. Diane Kaludjerovic

    Beautiful +++++

  20. Eduardo Lee

    This woud´ve been one of the most beautiful song in the Love is the Answer Album.
    Great song, great performance, great voice. Barbra, you´re the top.

  21. Gilmar Mattos

    Alina, can you upload "Fifty Percent"? I'm still waiting for my CD coming from England to Brazil!

    bernard michel Solioz

  22. Eduardo Lee

    Thanks Alina. I was waiting for it. Beautiful.

    Gilmar Mattos

    Can you share "Fifty Percent"? I am still waiting for my CD coming from England to Brazil!

    Nando Uchôa

    The one I like most, she didn't post. Snif snif. Fifty Percent is the best. In fact it entered in my list of Babra's top 15

  23. AbrahamDiner

    Barbra + Chris Botti + Rodgers & Hart = perfect
