"I Was Young Once Too" as written by Robert Byrne and Richard C Leigh....
He raced that engine down the track
'Round the tree on Christmas day
I was so amazed Dad could play with trains
I saw a sparkle in his eye
Then I heard him say
I was young once too, I was young once too

He washed that Buick faithfully
Lord, he kept her clean
I thought that machine
Meant more to him than me
On the day I turned sixteen
He threw me the keys
Said I was young once too, I was young once too

He was such a young man then
I'm older than that now
I hope I measure up to him
When the circle comes around

I caught him in the attic
Cross legged on the floor
With some old photographs
He pointed and he laughed
He said that's me in that picture
I said, "No son, that's your dad"
I was young once too, I was young once too
I was young once too, I was young once too
