"When I Was Young" as written by and V. Briggs E. 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 bad yen
And I had quite a gall

When I was young
When I was young it was more important
They'd more pain but they laughed 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
They'd more pain but they laughed much louder yeah

When I was young, when I was young
My faith was so much stronger then
I believed in fellow man
And I was so much older then

When I was young, when I was young
When I was young, when I was young
When I was young, when I was young
