Roll up roll up for the magical mystery tour step right this way

by davebarclay1954

Did we have fun, back when we were young
Was the summer longer and the days slower,
What happened to those carefree yesterday’s?
When life was for living and days full of fun

The years now seem to rush by in a haze
On December 31st seems as though
Yesterday was January 1st, but that’s tomorrow
Will it herald a new life dawning?

I still feel as though time marched on
But left me behind, if it were true
I could bottle it, sell it and retire
What happened to that burning desire?

I wanted to leave my mark on history
But all I do is cause so much misery
What happened to those dreams of mystery
What happened to put out the fire?
