Poor old granddad, I laughed at all his words
I thought he was a bitter man
He spoke of women's ways
He said they'll trap you and they'll use you and before you even know
For love is blind and you're far too kind
Boy, don't ever let it show

I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

The can-can such a pretty show
It will steal your heart away
But backstage back on earth again
All them dressing rooms are grey
They come on strong and it ain't too long
For they make you feel a man
But love is blind and you soon will find, yeah
You're just a boy again

He said I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

When you want her lips, you get her cheek
Makes you wonder where you are
And if you want some more then she's fast asleep
Leaves you twinkling with the stars
I say poor young grandson there's nothing I can say
You'll have to learn it just like me
And that's the hardest way, ooh la la
Yeah ooh la la
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh ooh la la
Everybody sing

I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

I said I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

Hey I said ooh la la, ooh la la yeah yeah
Ooh la la, oh ooh la la la la la la
Say ooh la la
Oh ooh la la la la la la la la la
Oh ooh la la
I said ooh la la
Everybody sing

I said I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger
Ooh la la
