Those were the Days
The days you thought you knew all about sex,
When all life was viewed through rose tinted specs,
How could you have known,
After the previous bird had flown,
That the one you would wed,
Was the one you snogged behind the bike shed.
The days when you thought you always knew best,
When you were full of vim, vigour and zest,
The days when you were young,
Had answers for everything, a really sharp tongue.
Never thought you would get old,
Never took advice, could never be told,
Now look back, sometimes a little sad,
Wishing to hell, sometimes you had.
Though like playing with fire,
When warned of consequences dire,
The lesson got well learned,
After the fingers got well burned!
