Ooh La La
Poor old granddad
I laughed at all his words
I thought he was a bitter man
He spoke of women's ways

He said they'll trap you, then they use you
Before you even know
For love is blind and you're far too kind
Hey boy, don't ever let it show

He said now
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

The can-can's such a pretty show
It will steal your heart away
But backstage back on earth again
All them dressing rooms are grey

Oh, they come on strong and it ain't too long
Boy they make you feel a man
But love is blind and you soon will find
Yeah, you're just a boy again

And I said
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger, Charlie

When you want her lips, you get her cheek
Makes you wonder where you are
If you want some more and she's fast asleep
Leaves you twinkling with the stars

I said, poor young grandson
There's nothing I can say
You'll have to learn it just like me
And that's the hardest way

Ooh la la
Ooh la la, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Aw ooh la la

I said
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

Said, I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

Ooh la la
Ooh la la, yeah
Oh come on ooh la la, ooh la la
Oh now ooh la la,
Yeah, yeah ooh la la, oh ooh la la.

Everybody sing, I said
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

Said, I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

Ooh la la, ooh
