Lyrics

When I was young I used to play by the firehouse after school each day

had an old friend, that was way back when

He had a wrinkled face and twinkling eyes

and he used to take me fishing by the river side

Everyday, come what may.


He was oh so Old But ah so Wise

He'd say "You're only as old as you feel inside"


I learned many things from that old man

Besides how to catch fish by the river bend

How to keep a smile, for a good long while

Yes life's like a fishing and he throws out his line

Gets a pretty good catch not all the time

I don't mind, he was strong and kind


He was oh so Old But ah so Wise

He'd say "You're only as old as you feel inside"


Now I'm getting old as you can see

But I'm happy with my grand kids on my knee

when they say "Hey, tell me about the good old days"

I think of my friends say "Life's like a train, keeps a runnin'

down the track through the sun and rain"

And the magic grows, when you come to know


When you're oh so Old But ah so Wise

You'll see you're only as old as you feel inside

He was oh so Old But ah so Wise

yeah you're only as old as you feel inside
