Ive been lately thinking about my lifes time
All the things Ive done, how its been
And I cant help believing in my own mind
I know Im gonna hate to see it end

Ive seen a lot of sunshine, slept out in the rain
Spent a night or two all on my own
Ive known my ladys pleasures, had myself some friends
And spent a night or two in my own home

I have to say it now, its been a good life, all in all
Its really fine to have a chance to hang around
And lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire
While all my friends and my old lady sit and pass the pipe around

Talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care
How long its been since yesterday and what about tomorrow?
What about our dreams and all the memories we share?

The days they pass so quickly now, nights are seldom long
Time around me whispers when its cold
The changes somehow frighten me, still I have to smile
It turns me on to think of growing old

For though my lifes been good to me theres still so much to do
So many things my mind's never known
Id like to raise a family, Id like to sail away
And dance across the mountains on the moon, yes I would

I have to say it now, its been a good life, all in all
Its really fine to have the chance to hang around
And lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire
While all my friends and my old lady, sit and watch the sun go down

Talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care
How long its been since yesterday and what about tomorrow?
What about our dreams and all the memories we share?
