growing up lyrics – dan hill

ma cried like a lady
pa cried like a man
1963 – one less kennedy
and i was too young to understand
and the years flew by in colours
each one a little faster than before
and as the war caused some to cry
i’d identify
my tv keeping score
growing up – in the shadow of the u.s.a.
trying to find – the meaning of life today

america – it’s a heavy kind of role you
play
you’re the hero – you’re the villain
your every move is on display

ma cried like a lady
pa cried like a man
1963 – one less kennedy
and i was too young to understand
we were all too young to understand
