Have you forgotten what we were like then
      when we were still first rate
      and the day came fat with an apple in its mouth
 
      it’s no use worrying about Time
      but we did have a few tricks up our sleeves
      and turned some sharp corners
 
      the whole pasture looked like our meal
      we didn’t need speedometers
      we could manage cocktails out of ice and water
 
      I wouldn’t want to be faster
      or greener than now if you were with me O you
      were the best of all my days
