lyrics

THE BEST YEARS OF MY LIFE

I should have planted a little oak tree
Watching it growing peacefully
Cutting it down when it started to be
So big that it blocked my view down to the sea

I would have made with all that wood
A kind of shack as well as I could
A shelter from the windy rainy days
For the best years of my life

For the best years of my life

And maybe one day I would have met
A girl with whom I could watch the sunset
Sitting on a bench at the top of the hill x
Just having fun with some time to kill

Playing my guitar with a bunch of friends
Writing songs till the night ends
This would have been without any doubt
Just the best years of my life

Just the best years of my life


Travelling down through the old world
Picking up there some funny new words
Riding till the time has come
To start to feel like a coming home

Just the best years of my life
Just the best years of my life
