My mind will sometimes wander
through the summers of my past
Down the long forgotten hedgerows
to a world that couldn’t last

From the leafy lanes of England
to Australia’s glowing sun
To a childhood filled with innocence
of friends, and hope, and fun

The world was somehow simpler then
where dreams might still come true
When the air was fresh and cleaner
and the sky a bluer blue

The ripened fruit of neighbours trees
that no one seemed to miss
The first sweet pain of puppy love
that first enchanted kiss

So many names and faces
have faded from my mind
and just like all those childhood dreams
have all been left behind

But sometimes when I sit alone
it All comes back to me
and in my mind I’m young again
foot loose and fancy free.
