I some -times wish I was a kid a -gain,
Down in the old neigh -bor -hood,
Just to be with Char -lie, with lit -tle Joe and Pete,
Boy, we had a quar -tette that was might -y hard to beat,
I'd love to stand down by that cel -lar door,
Just to hear that quar -tette sing once more,
"Heart Of My Heart," I love that mel -o -dy,
"Heart Of My Heart" brings back a mem -o -ry,
When we were kids on the cor -ner of the street,
We were rough and read -y guys, But Oh! How we could har -mon -ize,
"Heart Of My Heart," meant friends were dear -er then,
Too bad we had to part.
I know a tear would glis -ten if once more I could lis -ten
To that gang that sang "Heart Of My Heart."
