Tina Turner – When I Was Young lyrics

(e. Burdon, D. Briggs)
Producer: carter
Album: the collected recordings (94), private dancer emi centenary edition (96)
B-side of the "better be good to me" single

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

I smoked my first cigarette at ten
And for boys I had a bad yen
I had quite a ball
When I was young
When I was young

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

I met my first love at thirteen
He was brown, and I was pretty green
I learned quite a lot
When I was young
When I was young

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

My faith was so much stronger then
I believed in fellow men
I was so much older then
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young
