Old men and young boys make the finest of friends
The old one speaks wisdom and the young comprehends
The ladies come later and life takes a turn
And the boy starts forgetting everything that he’s learned

Singing qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day
Qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day
Hey ho lo lo lo hey ho lo lo lo
Tra la lista lay
Qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day

Good wine and women get better with age
It’s a story book life and I’m a-turning the page
The good times are waiting and I’m on my way
Singing qua la la la la la linta qua la linta la da day

Hey qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day
Qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day
Hey ho lo lo lo hey ho lo lo lo
Tra la lista lay
Qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day

Old man I miss you, I remember you well
You taught me that life was both heaven and hell
And life’s what you make it, you can go either way
Singing qua la la la la la linta qua la linta la da day

Hey qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day
Qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day
Hey ho lo lo lo hey ho lo lo lo
Tra la lista lay
Qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day

Qua la la la la la linta
Qua la linta la da day
