"Back When We Were Young" as written by and Hall....
Back when we were young everybody came to see us
Everybody wanted to be us back when we were young
We loved each other so all our friends told one another
And we even told each other back when we were young

It was laughin' it was dancin'
I was cigarettes and bourbon flavored kisses
It was alligator shoes and new blue suits
And anything that money wishes
It was sittin' up all night and waitin'
For the dawn to bring another wondrous day
It was holding hands and thinking
That tomorrow is a million years away

Back when we were young everybody came to see us
Everybody wanted to be us back when we were young
We loved each other so all our friends told one another
And we even told each other back when we were young

It was rolling seventh of a time
And thinking it was never ever gonna end
Back then we even thought of time itself
As being something as a passing friend
It was buyin' one another things we didn't need
And birthdays were so corny
Back then we even had some friends
Live as far away as California
Back when we were young
