Walter, remember when the world was young
And all the girls knew Walter's name?
Walter, isn't it a shame the way our little world has changed?

Do you remember Walter playing cricket in the thunder and the rain?
Do you remember Walter smoking cigarettes behind your garden gate?
Yes, Walter was my mate
But Walter, my old friend, where are you now?

Walter's name
Walter, isn't it a shame the way our little world has changed?

Do you remember Walter how we said we'd fight the world so we'd be free?
We'd save up all our money, and we'd buy a boat and sail away to sea
But it was not to be
I knew you then, but do I know you now?

Walter, you are just an echo of a world I knew so long ago
Walter, if you saw me now, you wouldn't even know my name
I bet you're fat and married
And you're always home in bed by half past eight

And if I talked about the old times, you'd get bored
And you'll have nothing more to say
Yes, people often change but memories of people can remain

Songwriters
DAVIES, RAYMOND DOUGLAS
