    When I was seventeen
    It was a very good year
    It was a very good year for small town girls
    And soft summer nights
    We'd hide from the lights
    On the village green
    When I was seventeen

    When I was twenty-one
    It was a very good year
    It was a very good year for city girls
    Who lived up the stair
    With all that perfumed hair
    And it came undone
    When I was twenty-one

    When I was thirty-five
    It was a very good year
    It was a very good year for blue-blooded girls
    Of independent means
    We'd ride in limousines
    Their chauffeurs would drive
    When I was thirty-five

    But now the days grow short
    I'm in the autumn of the year
    And now I think of my life as vintage wine
    From fine old kegs
    From the brim to the dregs
    And it poured sweet and clear
    It was a very good year

    It was a mess of good years
