Old But Wise

Old But Wise is a Shining Time Station song sung by Kevin Roth from Ring in the Old.

Lyrics

When I was young, I used to play
By the firehouse after school each day
I had an old friend
That was way back when

He had a wrinkly face and twinkling eyes
And he used to take me fishing by the riverside
Every day
Come what may

He was oh so old but also wise
He said "You're only as old as you feel inside

I learned any things from that old man
Besides how to catch fish by the river bend
And how to keep a smile
For a good long while

Yes, life's like a-fishing when he throws out his lines
Gets a pretty good catch, not all the time
I don't mind
But he was strong kind

He was oh so old but also wise
He said "You're only as old as you feel inside

Now I'm getting old as you can see
But I'm happy with my grand-kids on my knee
When they say you ain't
Tell me about the good old days

I think of my friends saying life's like a train
Keeps a-running down the tracks through the sun and rain
And the magic row
When you've come to know
When you're oh so old but also wise
You see, you're only as old as you feel inside
But he was oh so old but also wise
You're only as old as you feel inside
