Golden Earring - When I Was Young Lyrics




The rooms were so much colder then
My father was a soldier then
And times were very hard
When I was young, when I was young
I smoked my first cigarette at ten
And for girls I had a bad yen
And I had quite a gall
When I was young

When I was young it was more important
They'd more pain but they laughed 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
They'd more pain but they laughed much louder yeah
When I was young, when I was young

My faith was so much stronger then
I believed in fellow man
And I was so much older then
When I was young, when I was young
When I was young, when I was young
When I was young, when I was young

    Hey Guys, What about Eric Burton and The Animals? Most purest sound of this song, then again you guys' balls ain't dropped yet.

    Hiya, when you know how to read and understand what you are reading then you would see that I (and some comment givers) already gave credits to the Animals.

    1,000,000 thumbs up. Great band, awesome version. Check out their version of 8 Miles High.

  5. Joey Woodburn

    Riot's version is the I'm most used to but Golden Earring's is probably my favorite yet, well next to the original by The Animals.

  6. Elke Pluntke

    great cover

  7. Harry Marshall

    I'm proud of having loved this band never knowing them. They are way up there on my "prime players list" I wish them all well :-)

    A classic song, I still have the Animals-single. Nice version this is. The Ramones had their way with it too.
