The Animals When I Was Young Lyrics

Last updated: 10/13/2012 11:49:23 AM

The rooms were so much colder then
My father was a soldier then
And times were very hard
When I was young

I smoked my first cigarette at ten
And for girls, I had a bad yen
And I had quite a ball
When I was young

When I was young, it was more important
Pain more painful
Laughter much louder
Yeah, when I was young
When I was young

I met my first love at thirteen
She was brown and I was pretty green
And I learned quite a lot when I was young
When I was young

When I was young, IT WAS MORE IMPORTANT
Pain more painful
Laughter much louder
Yeah, when I was young
When I was young

My faith was so much stronger then
I believed in fellow men
And I was so much older then
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young

'When I Was Young' from The Animals Blast From The Past Album.

2nd verse
Instead of 'I had quite a ball' my cd plays 'I learned quite a lot'. It is possible it it 'I loved...' but repeated listening has me thinking it is 'I learned...'

3rd verse
after 'Yeah' I hear 'when I was young I had understanding, much more love, feel like feeling, yeah, when I was young,
when I was young.'

5th verse
Same changes as the 3rd verse

6th verse
Starts 'My life was so much...' rather than ''My faith was'
