Poor old Granddad I laughed at all his words I thought he was a bitter man He spoke of women"s ways They"ll trap you, then they use you before you even know For love is blind and you"re far too kind
Don"t ever let it display I wish that I knew what I know now When I was younger. I wish that I knew what I know now When I was stronger. The can-can such a pretty show Will steal your heart away But backstage back on earth again The dressing rooms are grey
They come on strong and it ain"t too long For they make you feel a man But love is blind and you soon will find You"re just a boy again When you want her lips, you get her cheek Makes you wonder where you are If you want some more then she"s fast asleep you"re just twinkling with the stars.
Poor young grandson, there"s nothing I can say You"ll have to learn, just like me And that"s the hardest way, ooh la la Ooh la la, la la, yeah I wish that I knew what I know now When I was younger. I wish that I knew what I know now When I was stronger.

This sort of reminds me of the video for Chelsea Dagger by The Fratellis.Looking at it closer I think it even has some of the same girls.

You know how every 80s/90s/00s(whatever age you were when you were a teen and/or in your early 20s) song that you look up on YT and go down a nostalgia trip? This song is the soundtrack to that trip.


Concur 100%, best rendition right here. Love the flute, recorder and violin accompaniment. Would be great to see live recording to see where/when all the instruments are used. That"s true with every song. Show us the live recording that pans out to see all the instruments. Many times they show the recording but flip to so many cameras, renders video useless. Beautiful sounds here!Seek an ye shall gefinden, check this out!:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYgdb3Glu3M
