Do you remember days
Not so very long ago
When the world was run by
People twice your size
And the days were full of laughter

And the nights were full of stars
And when you grew tired you
Could close your eyes
Yes the stars were were there for wishin’
And the wind was there for kites
And the morning sun was
There for rise and shine
And even in the sniffles
Kept you home from school in bed
You couldn't hardly
Stay there after nine

And I wonder if the
Smell of mornings faded

What happened to the robins
Song that sparkled in the sky
Where’s all the water gone
That tumbled down the stream
Will I ever catch another butterfly

Do you remember campouts
Right in your own backyard
Wondering how airplanes could fly
And the hours spent just playing
With a funny rock you found
With crystal specks as
Blue as all the sky

Now I watch my son
He’s playing with his toys
He’s happy and I
Give him all I can
But I can’t help feeling
Just a lime inside
When to hear him say
He wants to be a man
