Subject: RE: Songs about getting really old?
"Yesterday When I Was Young" -

Thanks for posting the lyrics. I'd always it thought it was kind of schmaltzy, without ever having really listened to it ("so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see") - although I do recall well being moved the first time I heard it - as a kid, saw Roy Clark sing it on Hee-Haw ... and now, just doing a search, I find that Mickey Mantle asked Roy Clark to sing it at his funeral.

You really have to have reached a certain age, and perhaps have lived a certain life, to appreciate it ...
