Went out walkin' through the wood the other day
And the world was a carpet laid before me
The buds were bursting and the air smelled sweet and strange
Seemed about a hundred years ago

Mary and I, we would sit upon a gate
Just gazin' at some dragon in the sky
What tender days we had no secrets hid away
Well, it seemed about a hundred years ago

Now all my friends are wearing worried smiles
Living out a dream of what they was
Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?

Went out walkin' through the wood the other day
Can't you see the furrows in my forehead?
What tender days we had no secrets hid away
Now it seems about a hundred years ago

Now if you see me drinkin' bad red wine
Don't worry 'bout this man that you love
Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?

You're gonna kiss and say goodbye, yeah, I warn you
You're gonna kiss and say goodbye, yeah, I warn you
You're gonna kiss and say goodbye, oh Lord, I warn you
Please excuse me while I hide away

Call me lazy bones, ain't got no time to waste away
Lazy bones ain't got no time to waste away
Don't you think, don't you think it's just about time to hide away?
Yeah, yeah

Kiss your baby
Kiss your baby
Goodbye, goodbye
