Lyrics of Fifty Years Ago

Went out walking down the road the other day
And the world was a painting all around me
The birds were singing and the air smelled sweet and clean
Got me thinking back to fifty years ago

My friends and I would sit upon a hill
Just watching the clouds up in the sky
Those magic days with no problems in the way
Oh how fast fifty years have passed us by

See the lines in my hands and face
I think they're here to stay
I've tried never growing up
But fifty years just takes it away

Don't worry about me
The man you love
For I shall be just fine
I've been here for fifty years
And you have always been mine

Went walking through the park the other day
The place was a theater that surrounded me
The place was alive with butter flies
and birds all around me

I turned my head when some one said
Hey don't you know
we're showing a movie from the past
with an all star cast
called Fifty Years ago

We were all sixteen up there on the screen
and no one asking why
Those magic days
With no problems in the way
Oh how fast fifty years have gone by

Don't worry about me
The man you love
For I shall be just fine
I've been here for fifty years
And you have always been mine

Now we're all gray
no time to waste away
And let me explain why

Those fifty years the way it looks
Have all gone down in history books

Oh-how fast they have gone by
Oh-how fast they have gone
Oh-how fast they have gone
