Eric Burdon – When I Was Young lyrics

The rooms were so much colder then
My father was a soldier then
And times were very hard
When I was young, when I was young

I smoked my first cigarette at ten, yeah
And for girls, I had a bad, yeah
I lost so very much
When I was young, when I was young, girl

When I was young it was more important
Pain more painful, the laughter much louder, yeah
When I was young, yeah, when I was baby, yeah

I met my first love at thirteen
She was brown, and I was so green, yeah
And I learned so very much
When I was young, yeah, when I was young, yeah

When I was young it was more important
Pain more painful, laughter much louder, yeah
When I was young, when I was a baby, yeah

Don't you know my faith was so much stronger then, yeah
I really did believed in my fellow men, yeah
We had John, George Paul [Incomprehensible]
When I was young, when I was young

When I was a baby, baby baby
Just one time in [Incomprehensible]
No shoes upon my feet, [Incomprehensible]
When I was young, yeah

Yeah yeah yeah
Baby baby baby

When I was young, yeah, oh oh
When I was young, yeah, yeah yeah
[Incomprehensible]

When I was young, yeah yeah
When I was a baby, oh oh
[Incomprehensible]
When I was young, yeah
When I was young, baby
