"Hello, Young Lovers" is a song featured in the 1956 film The King and I sung by Deborah Kerr as Anna Leonowens with vocal by Marni Nixon. Composed by Richard Rodgers with lyrics written by Oscar Hammerstein II, the song is sung by the heroine Anna Leonowens when she tells the wives of the King of Siam about her late husband and sympathizes with the plight of Tuptim, the Burmese slave girl and newest wife of the king.


When I think of Tom
I think about a night
When the earth smelled of summer
And the sky was streaked with white
And the soft mist of England
Was sleeping on a hill

I remember this
And I always will
There are new lovers now
On the same silent hill
Looking on the same blue sea
And I know Tom and I are a part of them all
And they're all a part of Tom an' me

Hello young lovers, whoever you are
I hope your troubles are few
All my good wishes go with you tonight
I've been in love like you

Be brave, young lovers, and follow your star
Be brave and faithful and true
Cling very close to each other tonight
I've been in love like you

I know how it feels to have wings on your heels
And to fly down a street in a trance
You fly down a street on the chance that you meet
And you meet—not really by chance

Don't cry young lovers, whatever you do
Don't cry because I'm alone
All of my memories are happy tonight
I've had a love of my own
I've had a love of my own, like yours
I've had a love of my own
