LYRIC

[Verse 1]
Went out walking through the wood the other day
And the world was a carpet laid before me
The buds were bursting, and the air smelled sweet and strange
And it seemed about a hundred years ago
Mary and I, we would sit upon a gate
Just gazing at some dragon in the sky
What tender days, we had no secrets hid away
Well, it seemed about a hundred years ago
Now if you see me drinking bad, red wine
Don't worry about this man that you loved
Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?
Went out walking through the woods the other day
Can't you see those furrows in my forehead?
What tender days, we had no secrets hid away
It seems about a hundred years ago
Now my friends is wearing worried smiles
Living out a dream of what they was
Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?

[Chorus]
You're going to kiss this man good-bye, Lord, I warn you
You're going to kiss him good-bye, Lord, I warn you
You're going to kiss him good-bye, well well, I warn you

[Verse 2]
And please excuse me while I hide away
Call me lazy bones
Ain’t got the time to waste away
Lazy bones ain't got the time to waste away
Don't you think it's just about time to hide away? Yeah, yeah
