Feet Were Walking

When I was young did eagerly frequent [Randy]

The tree house 'cross the street [Kansas Sam]

I often partied with my friends hell-bent [Randy]

And nibbled on their feet [Francine]

With them the seeds of wisdom did I sow [Randy]

As well as marijuana [Francine]

And with my own hand laboured it to grow [Randy]

(I learned how while in Ghana) [F]

Into my heart an air that kills [Randy]

From yon far bottom blows [N]

Where are those blue remembered pills? [Randy]

And those streets and hedgerows [baoloa]

That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain [Randy]

In dreams of yesteryearnings [Francine]

I play the synapse, and tease my youthful brain [baoloa]

My memories of sweet first love are burning [Karin]
