[Verse]
But not for me
Doing things I used to do
I sit and watch
As tears go by
I want to hear the children sing

I sit and watch
They think are new
[Chorus]
As tears go by

My riches can’t buy everything
I sit and watch the children play
It is the evening of the day
[Chorus]
It is the evening of the day
Smiling faces I can see
Of rain falling on the ground
All I hear is the sound
As tears go by
I sit and watch
I sit and watch the children play
