Richie Havens - Younger Men Grow Older lyrics

"Wish I was a younger man"
Said the old man to the young man
Oh, I told you what I would do

That is if I could find something to do
I never did before
Because the younger men
Grow older everyday

Wish we had a better plan
To get us where we want to go
How useful it would be

But I feel if we don't plan ahead
We surely will need a helping hand
'Cause younger men
Grow older everyday

Wish I could see my children grow
And doing what they want to do
Oh, that is all I am living for

But if you don't tell them
How to do what they want to do
You find out that
Younger men grow older everyday

Wished we had not wrecked the land
By understanding without a plan
And wastin' all those lives, yeah, yeah

So if we do not say it now
We may never ever survive
To hear them say
Younger men grow older everyday

We may not even see
We may not even see
We may not even see
Younger men grow older
Oh, no, no, no, no

We may not even see
Younger men grow older
We may not even see
We may not survive
To even see younger men grow older
No, no

Younger, younger men grow older
Older, we may not even see
Younger men grow older
