100 YEARS AGO

(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Went out walkin' through the wood the other day
And the world was a carpet laid before me
The buds were bursting and the air smelled sweet and strange
It seemed about a hundred years ago

Mary and I, we would sit upon a gate
Just gazin' at some dragon in the sky
What tender days we had no secrets hid away
Well, it seemed about a hundred years ago

Now all my friends is wearing worried smiles
Living out a dream of what they was
Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?

Went out walkin' through the wood the other day
Can't you see the furrows in my forehead?
What tender days, we had no secrets hid away
Now it seems about a hundred years ago

Now if you see me drinkin' bad red wine
Don't worry 'bout this man that you love
Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?

You're gonna kiss and say good-bye, yeah, I warn ya
You're gonna kiss and say good-bye, yeah, I warn ya
You're gonna kiss and say good-bye, oh Lord, I warn ya
Please excuse me while I hide away

Call me lazy bones
Ain't got no time to waste away
Lazy bones ain't got no time to waste away
Don't you think, don't you think, it's just about time to hide away? Yeah, yeah!

Oh kiss me, kiss me
Kiss me baby, good-bye, yeah
Good-bye, yeah, good-bye, yeah, good-bye, yeah
Come on,
kiss me
Yeah
, your gonna kiss me baby - bye
I warn ya, I warn ya, I warn ya I warn ya, I warn ya!
