Text by Bill Richardson


What, my friend, will I remember, when I’m old then older yet?
What, my friend, will I remember? What, my friend, will I forget?
A rained out birthday picnic, my rst straight-A report card, the fate of Harry Potter?
Will I remember being young? Remember how I look? Remember how we look right now?
What, my friend, will you remember? Oh my friend, oh my dear.
What, my friend, will you remember? When you’re old and full of years. Will you remember here and now? Recall how once we’d sung this song?
This song about forgetfulness, when we were still so young? Will you remember standing tall?
Will you remember me, my friend? Will I remember you?
The time that lies ahead of us is greater than the time that’s gone. Let’s meet again and sing this song when the opposite is true. Whatever else we may forget, remember now: Sing with no regrets.
