"Salad Days" as written by and Macbriare Samuel Demarco....
As I’m getting older, chip up on my shoulder
Rolling through life, to roll over and die
La la la la la, la la la la, la la la la, oh

Missing hippy Jon, salad days are gone
Remembering things just to tell ‘em so long
La la la la la, la la la la, la la la la, oh

Oh mama, actin’ like my life’s already over
Oh dear, act your age and try another year

Always feeling tired, smiling when required
Write another year off and kindly resign
La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la, oh

Salad days are gone, missing hippy Jon
Remembering the days just to tell ‘em so long
La la la la la, la la la la, la la la la, oh

Oh mama, actin’ like my life’s already over
Oh dear, act your age and try another year

Oh mama, actin’ like my life’s already over
Oh dear, act your age and try another year

    My InterpretationSong is about growing up. The term "Salad days" comes from Shakespeare which is an idiom for the time of our life in which represent youth years, inexperience, enthusiasm, and innocence.

    General CommentSucks to get old.

    Adult life may be rewarding and fulfilling, but it'll never be as fun as it was during the salad days of your youth.
