Greg Brown - I Remember When LyricsA girl rode through the gate.She was two hours late.She got off her horseand her mother, of course,was standing there waiting,standing by the gate."Where have you been?Don't you know it's almost ten?I've been so worried-you should have hurried-this better not happen again-better not happen again!""Well Mom, ahem, uh-hum,I know I should have comehome long ago,but you knowI was having such funriding in the sun."The mother huffed and puffed-she said "I've had enough,You must stay home and play alonefor a week!"and her voice was guff.But Grandma was standing thereand caught mother unaware.In a quiet voice she said"You know Joyce,you've forgotten something theredon't you remember when?"Well, I remember whenyou were a girl of ten-you may not recallthat you did it allwhen you were very small-but I remember when.So mother hugged daughterand daughter hugged motherand grandma smiledall the whileand then they all sang this song.I remember whenyou were a girl of tenyou may not recallthat you did it allwhen you were very small,but I remember when.
