TIME (Shel Silverstein) Shel Silverstein - 1969 The Old Dogs - 1998 Ain't the snow falling just a bit deeper these days? Aren't they building the stairs a bit steeper these days? And the town's really changin' in so many ways Time...Time...Time The young folks, they're growin' exceptionally tall And the newspaper print, it's becoming quite small And folks speak so soft, you can hardly hear at all Time...Time...Time The jokes don't seem as witty as the old jokes once were And the gals aren't half as pretty as I remember her And today... you know... in the park, a young man called me "Sir" Time...Time...Time Yeah... I'm not quite as anxious for fame or success And my eye finds the girl in the plain quiet dress And I cling a bit longer to each warm caress Time...Time...Time So I breathe a bit heavy when I climb a hill What of it? My life now is really much more fulfilled But they're tearin' down buildings that I watched 'em build Time...Time...Time ****** As recorded by The Old Dogs (Lead vocal: Bobby Bare) - (Waylon Jennings, Mel Tillis, Bobby Bare & Jerry Reed) Ain't the snow falling just a bit deeper these days Ain't they building the stairs a bit steeper these days And the town's really changed in so many ways Time, just time And the young folks, they're growing exceptionally tall Newspaper print, it's becoming too small And folks talk so soft, you can barely hear at all Time, just time And the jokes aren't as witty as the old jokes once were The girls ain't half as pretty as I remember her And today in the park, a grown man called me "Sir" Time, just time And you know I ain't quite so anxious now for fame or success And my eye finds the girl in the plain simple dress And I cling a bit longer to each warm caress Time, just time So it takes a bit longer to walk up a hill What of it, my life now is much more fulfilled But they're tearing down buildings that I watched 'em build Time, time ******
