A                            C
I was never young, even as a child
     A 
Said I was never young
                   C
I've always felt beguiled
    D            A
Oh, I just never smiled

    Bbaug      Bm
But you have a glow
        Dnaj7                  G


Because I was never young, even as a boy
No, I was never young
Kindness seemed no ploy to temper or annoy

But you, you have a mind
Full of wonderment I'll never find
Because I was never young

Ever since I was a kid
     Bb
I've been a brooding basket case
F           
Ever since I was a kid
     Bb
I've been a brooding basket case
