The lyrics:
当你老了 头发白了
当你老了 走不动了
炉火旁打盹 回忆青春
爱慕你的美丽 假意或真心
当你老了 眼眉低垂
风吹过来 你的消息
爱慕你的美丽 假意或真心
当我老了 我真希望

It is adapted from William Butler Yeats
When You Are Old
By William Butler Yeats
When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
