Don't we all wish for 20/20 hindsight?


Deeds undone, and sights unseen, long time ago
Wondering what might have been, long time ago
Instead of breaking all the rules, and acting like a bloody fool
I'd done a little bit in school, long time ago

I don't care what the neighbours say
They don't like me anyway
I'll go for a walk on a Sunday with Peggy on my good right arm

There was a lassie in this town, long time ago
I must confess, I let her down, long time ago
Such empty promises are these, sweet apples from a lemon tree
Better she deserved from me, long time ago


If I'd known then what I know now, long time ago
I like to think that still somehow, long time ago
I would have chosen differently my habits and my company
I wasn't very nice, you see, long time ago


Nothing ventured, nothing gained, long time ago
No-one left to take the blame, long time ago
They say that every man is free to be the man he wants to be
It didn't mean that much to me, long time ago
