When I was a boy, I used to play in the sand
There were no toys, down at the camp we played with pots and pans
When Catherine threw my coveted object towards the tide
I ran and I stepped in a hornet's nest and I almost died

Do do do-do do, do do do-do do
Do do do-do do do-do do do-do do do

When I was a boy, I couldn't play
I had to work all day just to stay awake

When I was a boy, I used to seize in the night
I'd bite my tongue, fall out of bed, give Mother a fright
Buzzing machine, dots of cold cream fixed wires to my head
Bob the technician, his one leg was wooden
He said to lay still in my hospital bed

Do do do-do do, do do do-do do
Do do do-do do do-do do do-do do do

When I was a boy, I used to pray
I had to work all day just to stay awake
When I was a boy, my hair was grey
Now I just work all day just to stay awake

Bumbling bee, on bended knee, hooked up to machines
Boy that me, that was me, that was me
Down on one knee, hooking up to machines
Bumbling, bumbling, bumbling bee
On bended knee, hooked up to machines
Girl that was me, that was me, that was me
Down on knee, hooked up to machines
Bumbling, bumbling, bumbling

Do do do-do do, do do do-do do
Do do do-do do do-do do do-do do do
Do do do-do do, do do do-do do
Do do do-do do do-do do do-do do do
