turn around lyrics – dick and dee dee

life grows short
and man grows old
summer’s gone
and the wind turns cold

where are you going
my little one, little one
where are you going
my sonny, my own

turn around and you’re two
turn around and you’re four
turn around, you’re a young man
going out of the door

where are you going
my little one, little one
pigtails and petticoats
where have you gone

turn around and you’re tiny
turn around and you’re grown
turn around, you’re a young wife
with babes of your own

turn around and you’re tiny
turn around and you’re grown
turn around, you’re a young wife
with babes of your own

where are you going
my little ones, little ones
where have they gone
our children, my own

turn around and they’re young
turn around and they’re old
turn around and they’ve gone
and we’ve no one to hold

turn around and they’re young
turn around and they’re old
turn around and they’ve gone
and we’ve no one to hold
