I Remember When I Was Young

Well I remember when I was young the world had just begun and I was happy
I used to wonder about the Earth and how it moved around the sun so snappy
Imagination going wild makes a very backward child that’s what they told me
So back at school I’d sit around waiting for the sound so I could go on home

Sometimes I think about it
It happens every day
I should think of the present
Cause the presents now

Well I remember when I was young how one and thrippence got you in the movies
To look tough we’d light a smoke and very nearly choke but we had a real good time
Growing older meant you’d get to fly a saber jet and fight a few wars
So I’d just sit there all day and let my mind decay something awful

Sometimes I think about it
It happens every day
I should think of the present
Cause the presents now

Well I remember when I was young I had a secret love who never knew it
I’d do tricks upon my bike they’d never turn out right, I always blew it
And the day we had to part, I had a broken heart but couldn’t let on
So I spent my holidays just thinking bout the ways I must have gone wrong

Sometimes I think about it
It happens every day
I should think of the present
Cause the presents now

Well I remember when I was young the Beatles turned me on they really blew my mind
And with Kerry Jack and Pam we'd go and watch a band and have a real good time
Then I heard the Black mans blues they really blew a fuse inside my head
So with some friends we made a stand and formed our first blues band, it was a real good thing.
