Once upon a time
(Once u-pon a / Time so long ago)
We played in harmony)
(Playing, playing / Happy all the time)
Spanky, Spud and Stymie
(Spanky, Spud and / Stymie I did know)
A pup named Pete and me
(Here boy, Petey / They were pals of mine)
Motley friends we made
(Motley friends we / Made forever and)
And happy songs we sang
(Happy songs we / Sang together, oh)
I recall those good old days
(I recall those good old days)
With you and all our gang
(With you and all our gang)

I can see chases, turns and twists
(I can see chases, turns and / Twists around the bend)
And mischief made for fun
(Mischief made for / Fun, fun, fun all day)
Old man shakes his fist
(Old man shakes his / Fist and frowns again)
As the little rascals run
(Little rascals / Run, run, run away)
Secret pranks we played
(Secret pra-nks / Not a sound and then)
That ended with a bang
(Ended with a / With a great, big bang)
Such a ball, those good old days
(Such a ball, those good old days)
With you and all our gang
(With you and all our gang)

Calendar leaves falling down
Tossed by the wind all around
Seasons have passed away
(Seasons / Passing away from me)
(Ooh, passing a- / Way, a-way)
(Seasons / Pass a-way)
Once there were skies that were clear
Now, like the face in the mirror
Ev'rything's gone to gray
(Ooh, ah / Ev'rything's gray to me)
(Ooh, ev'rything's / Gray, so gray)
(Ooh, ah / Gray, so gray)
Gray, like the state that I'm in
Dreaming of where I have been
Fearful of where I'm bound
(Fearful of where I'm / Bound)
(Fear, Fearful of / Where I am bound)
(Fearing / Where I am bound)
Scattered about on the ground
Calendar leaves falling down

Time has traced its tears
Where once I gazed and smiled
Faces show the years
Yet my heart remains a child
Dreaming in the shade
While distant school bells rang
Leaves must fall like good old days
With you and all our gang
