◼︎

The rooms were so much colder then
My father was a soldier then
And times were very hard
When I was young
I smoked my first cigarette at ten
And for girls, I had a bad yen
And I had quite a ball
When I was young
When I was young, it was more important
Pain more painful
Laughter much louder
Yeah, when I was young
When I was young
I met my first love at thirteen
She was brown and I was pretty green
And I learned quite a lot when I was young
When I was young
When I was young
It was more important
Pain more painful
Laughter much louder
Yeah, when I was young
When I was young
My faith was so much stronger then
I believed in fellow men
And I was so much older then
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!

  1. My favorite Animals material is a little earlier than that. Ironic for a white boy in the United States to learn the blues from white boys in the UK. Eric. Mick. Yardbirds. Them. And more. But way better than not learning at all.
