"When I Was Young" as written by and Eric Victor Burdon....
The rooms were so much colder then
My father was a soldier then
And times were very hard
When I was young
When I was young

I smoked my first cigarette at ten
And for girls I had a that yen
And I had quite a ball
When I was young

When I was young it was more important
Pain more painful and 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 and 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...

    General CommentThis song is pretty much self-explanitory.

    The Ramones are amazing

    General CommentThis song was a cover of the Animals song, but it was not until a few years later that I found this out. Excellent song.
