Oh, to be once again
That fourteen year old boy

Who had yearly school vacations
Until September -- what a joy!

We kids would get up to many shenanigans
With nothing to do but play,

I recall, very clearly, how soon it was over --
The summer just frittered away,

Abbott & Costello, The Three Stooges,
Martin & Lewis double features

Kept us entertained -- King Kong
And Mighty Joe Young were creatures,

Now that I'm happily retired
I'm a lot like I was in those days

But I spend some time in contemplation --
See thru the mists of time haze.
