I've had a good life
some well defined moments
Always tried my best
sure I've had regrets

You could say that
I wished a bit
hoped a lot
kissed a bit
loved a lot
Laughed a bit
smiled a lot
danced a bit
and dreamed a lot

A novice at first
but hey weren't we all then?
And some friends were lost
at no little cost
you could say that I

heard a bit
saw a lot
taught a bit
learned a lot
Played a bit
worked a lot
lost a bit but I really lived a lot

I've had a nice life
complaints I have few at all
life is so serene
fifty years it's been
I hope my Berkeley Boy's there
