: : George Bernard Shaw.
: when and why did Shaw use it??
I have looked through ALL my quote books and can't find where, when and how Shaw said it. However, I did find a reference to the quote:
It's that second time you hear your love song sung,
Makes you think perhaps, that
Love like youth is wasted on the young.
The Second Time Around - 1960 song. Sammy Cahn (Samuel Cohen). Music by James Van Heusen.
