I sometimes wish I was a kid again,
Down in the old neighborhood,
Just to be with Charlie, with little Joe and Pete,
Boy, we had a quartette that was mighty hard to beat,
I'd love to stand down by that cellar door,
Just to hear that quartette sing once more,
"Heart Of My Heart," I love that melody,
"Heart Of My Heart" brings back a memory,
When we were kids on the corner of the street,
We were rough and ready guys, But Oh! How we could harmonize,
"Heart Of My Heart," meant friends were dearer then,
Too bad we had to part.
I know a tear would glisten if once more I could listen,
To that gang that sang "Heart Of My Heart."
