lyrics

IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR

VERSE 1:

WHEN I WAS SEVENTEEN
IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR
IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR
FOR SMALL TOWN GIRLS
AND SOFT SUMMER NIGHTS
WE'D HIDE FROM THE LIGHTS
ON THE VILLAGE GREEN
WHEN I WAS SEVENTEEN

VERSE 2:

WHEN I WAS TWENTY ONE
IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR
IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR
FOR CITY GIRLS
WHO LIVED UP THE STAIR
WITH ALL THAT PERFUMED HAIR
AND IT CAME UNDONE
WHEN I WAS TWENTY ONE

VERSE 3:

WHEN I WAS THIRTY FIVE
IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR
IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR
FOR BLUE BLOODED GIRLS
OF INDEPENDENT MEANS
WE'D RIDE IN LIMOUSINES
THEIR CHAUFFEURS WOULD DRIVE
WHEN I WAS THIRTY FIVE

VERSE 4:

BUT NOW THE DAYS GROW SHORT
I'M IN THE AUTUMN OF THE YEAR
AND NOW I THINK OF MY LIFE
AS VINTAGE WINE
FROM FINE OLD KEGS
FROM THE BRIM TO THE DREGS
AND IT POURED SWEET AND CLEAR
IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR
