This is where we once went to play
But now the laughter’s gone away
Time moved on and so did we
Now it seem that we’re not free

This is where Mother once was seated
But all our memories are depleted
For we grew up and soon forgot
Of all the fun and balls we caught

This is where our youth was spent
But now we visit with lament
Wishing we were young again
To escape a life that is mundane

This is where we dream the past
But the dreams they never last
So our life goes on and I implore
That we will learn to play once more
