Written by Mike Davies
I remember when I was young,
And I had all the power.
When I was youthful and strong,
And I didn't pee every half hour.
When my hair met my shoulders,
Not an ounce of fat in sight,
When i could see without glasses,
And my trousers weren't too tight.
When I owned every record in the charts,
I knew the words to every tune,
I didn't use a bulldog clip,
And my face didn't resemble a prune.
I remember when I thought I'd live forever,
And getting old was just baffling,
And rising to the occasion,
Didn't involve scaffolding.
The days of my youth were full of fun,
I would never go backwards, here's why,
I may never meet the love of my life,
Or hear my beautiful daughter cry.
