Treat Her Gently
Treat Her Kind
She Doesn't Even Know Her Own Mind

Treat Her Simply
Take It Slow
Make It Easy
And Let Her Know
You'll Never Find Another Way

Here We Sit
Two Lonely Old People
Eaking Our Lives Away

Bit By Bit
Two Lonely Old People
Keeping The Time Of Day

Here We Sit
Out Of Breath
And Nobody Asked Us To Play

Old People's Home For The Play
Nobody Asked Us To Play

Treat Her Gently
Treat Her Kind
She Doesn't Even Know Her Own Mind

Treat Her Simply
Make It Slow
Take It Easy
And Let Her Know
You'll Never Find Another Way

Here We Sit
Two Lonely Old People
Nobody Asked Us To Play.

    General CommentI always like to imagine this song is addressed to John Lennon (however unlikely). The "Treat her gently" part is about him and Yoko. Or him and Cynthia. And the "Here we sit" part is him and John sitting at and old folks home (assuming the tragedy of december 8th never happened) after their wives have both passed away. These two old friends are just sitting "Keeping the time of day". The both tired, bored, and lonely... but yet they are both bound together my a remarkably deep friendship till the end. Nobody regards them as famous legends or musicians anymore, they are just two more old british guys so "Nobody asks them to play..."
