I've been lately thinking
All the things I've done
And I can't help believing
I know I'm gonna hate to see it end
I've seen a lot of sunshine
Spent a night or two all on my own
Had myself some friends

It's been a good life all in all
To have a chance to hang around
And watch the evening tire
Sit and pass the pipe around
And talk of poems and prayers and promises
How sweet it is to love someone
How long it's been since yesterday
And what about our dreams

Nights are seldom long
The changes somehow frighten me
It turns me on to think of growing old
There's still so much to do
I'd like to raise a family
And dance across the mountains on the moon
I have to say it now
It's really fine
And lie there by the fire
While all my friends and my old lady

And things that we believe in
How right it is to care
What about tomorrow
And all the memories we share
