​When I am Old One Day

This song is by Harvey Andrews and appears on the album Writer Of Songs (1972).

When I am old one day
Children will laugh as I shuffle on by
Pausing with every stride
Believing that steps were never so high.

When I am old one day
Surrounded by pieces of long ago,
I will recall today,
And wonder where all of the hours go.

Will I sit in the park
Time on my hands to soak up the sun?
Or will I have made my mark
And still have some things that have to be done?

Will I talk to the air
Mumbling phrases to shadows that hide,
With people who stop to stare
And wonder just who I see at my side.

When I am old one day
Watching the children playing their game,
Someone may pass my way
And look at my face and call out my name.

And then he'll remember when
I stood on the stage and I sang this song,
And maybe we'll both try then
To remember the words and sing along.

When I am old one day
