Lyrics

When I was seventeen [Robbie Williams]
It was a very good year [Robbie Williams]
It was a very good year [Robbie Williams]
For small town girls and soft summer nights [Robbie Williams]
We'd hide from the light on the village green [Robbie Williams]
When I was seventeen [Robbie Williams]

When I was twenty-one [Robbie Williams]
It was a very good year [Robbie Williams]
It was a very good year [Robbie Williams]
For city girls who lived up the stairs [Robbie Williams]
With perfume hair and it came undone [Robbie Williams]
When I was twenty-one [Robbie Williams]

When I was thirty-five [Frank Sinatra]
It was a very good year [Frank Sinatra]
It was a very good year [Frank Sinatra]
For blue-blooded girls of independent means [Frank Sinatra]
We'd ride in limousines [Frank Sinatra]
Their chauffeurs would drive [Frank Sinatra]
When I was thirty-five [Frank Sinatra]

But now the days are short [Frank Sinatra]
I'm in the autumn of the year [Frank Sinatra]
And now I think of my life [Frank Sinatra]
As vintage wine from fine old kegs [Frank Sinatra]
From the brim to the dregs [Frank Sinatra]
It poured sweet and clear [Frank Sinatra]
It was a very good year [Frank Sinatra]
