Sunrise Sunset


„Sunrise Sunset”

J. Bock

S. Harnick

from the musical „Fiddler On The Roof”



Is this the little girl I carried

Is this the little boy at play

I don’t remember growing older

When did they

When did she get to be a beauty

When did he grow to be so tall

Wasn’t it yesterday

When they were small


Sunrise sunset

Sunrise sunset

Swiftly flow the days

Seedlings turn overnight to sunflower.

Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise sunset

Sunrise sunset

Swiftly fly the years

One season following another

Laden with happiness and tears


What words of wisdom can I give them

How can I help to ease their way

Now they must learn from one another

Day by day

They look so natural together

just like the newly – weds should be

Is there a canopy in store for me.


Sunrise sunset…
