Mar 18

Those were the days, a kid forever

As the rain pours upon the mighty Rogue River
I get a warm feeling and begin to remember

My Saturdays as a kid
Watching cartoons till ten I did

Then off to the beach to reel in the perch
Then off again to play in the dirt

Riding bikes all over the city
Having fun and being silly

Never a worry, never a care
Bologna sandwiches and root beer

Riding horses and motorbikes
Shoot’n guns and flying kites

No computers or video games
We played in the sun, we played in the rain

Old age has come and slowed me down
But I’ll be a kid till I’m dead in the ground
