1971. Goes with 'The Night'

Live And Learn

For our Christmas
the kids got a sled
it was long
and it was red...
The hill was perfect
for the ride
and I knew that sled
would surely glide
"I'm an expert"
I told them then
so we went to the hill
our fun to begin...
The kids never ran
and hopped a sled
so I turned to them
and proudly said,
"Just watch me
I'll show you how"
Then I picked up the sled
and took a bow
The run was great-
The bell-hop was nice
But I missed the sled
and hit the ice!
So many times
I have been told,
"Your youth is gone
You're getting old"
