People used to get together round a fire
Fishes were cooked, songs were sung
Moonlight used to guide our way home in the dark
Do you find it hard remembering?

And still you people tell me life is easy to get on with
But what I've got so far's enough to get along with
People tell me that it's so oh - oh
I don't know anymore, I don't know

People used to get together round a problem
Eyes were looked at tongues were true
People used to stop and say how do you do
Do you find it hard remembering?

And still you people tell me life is easy to get on with
But what I've got so far's enough to get along with
People tell me that it's so oh - oh
I don't know anymore, I don't know

People used to spend an hour making tea
Easy easy was the rule
People used to pause to think and contemplate
He who hurried was the fool

And still you people tell me life is easy to get on with
But what I've got so far's enough to get along with
People tell me that it's so oh - oh
I don't know anymore, I don't know
