​Younger Days

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album In The Quiet Corners Of My Mind (1969).

When I was young the world to me,
Was a funny face and a three leg race,
And a cheeky bird I used to see,
Hiding out there in our mulberry tree,
When I was young the world was such a simple place.

Just a sleepy head when the sun went down,
On a toothy grin and a sunburnt chin,
And a yellow moon hanging from the sky.

So sweet were my younger days,
I never thought they'd ever slip away,
I never seemed to notice they were marching on,
Until I looked one day,
And they were gone.

When I was young the world to me,
Was the sun in the sky and an apple pie,
And a puppy dog who ran along,
Wagging his tail in front of me,
When I was young the world was such a simple place

Just a story book and a goodnight kiss,
The summer time and that hand in mine,
And a yellow moon hanging from the sky.

And the story book and the goodnight kiss,
The summer time and that hand in mine,
And the yellow moon hanging from the sky,
The sleepy head when the sun went down,
On a toothy grin and that sunburnt chin,
And the yellow moon hanging from the sky.
