All Those Years

came from the races with nothing to show
you bought me a disco i brought you a rose
once i waited for pilsner and wine
but something came up and we danced for a time

all those years
will it be the same again?

the talk at the conference and lunch by the pool
when you stood up and sang out against all the rules
twenty four hours and eleven til three
healthy and ancient and proud ever free
