Title
Childhood's happy days
Additional title: There's naught like childhood's happy days, From ev'ry sorrow free, Age knows but cares and worriment, Youth knows but joy and glee, The friends I had in boyhood's days, Are scattered far and wide, Some here at home, some far away, Still others, graves now hide! [first line]
Additional title: Where are the boys, boys of my youth, Boys that were always with me Out on the field, Up in the glen, Always together we'd be, Happy and gay, All thro' the day, Hearts that were lighter than air, I cry in vain, "Come back again!" Youth, joyous Youth, oh, so fair! [first line of chorus]
