Oh, To Be Young

Oh, to be young again To do the things I did then To run and play, dance and sing With not a worry about anything Oh to be young once more Before middle age crept in the door Before the pull of gravity Made these wrinkles on my knee Oh, to be young and in my prime Happy-go-lucky all of the time All my dreams were ahead of me Knowing just what I wanted to be Oh, to be young an physically fit Doing things just for the fun of it Crazy and wild and taking risks Before I had herniated disks Oh, to be young and so smart No worries about a broken heart Thinking life would always be The way it was for you and me Oh, to be young and free I would not go back, you see Unless I knew what I know now Mistakes I made, I'd fix somehow
