Kline heard from her mother. [Words say to overtake our younger years so they won’t escape from us. Ruth Rubin in English, she didn’t understand the 3rd line.

At the end, Rubin says singer’s version is more beautiful than hers, Kline says but yours has a wonderful lilt; Rubin agrees, a Ukrainian lilt.]
