Last week I when was seventeen – 1971

David Bowie1

Moon Age daydreams filled my head

Last week when I was seventeen

Adventure, excitement, I’d paint the town red

Last week when I was seventeen.


The Fashions were daring

The colors were bright

We were brave and rebellious

We stayed out all night

We did what we wanted and suffered the cost

I wish I were still there,  but those days have been lost.

Shoes 1971

I hobbled around in shoes just like these

Mum they’re comfortable honest, don’t worry, I’m fine

I won’t twist my ankle or fall on my knees

I love them, look at me, don’t I look sublime?

Life was so much fun, last week when I was seventeen, in 1971

Where did the time go?

Can I really be old?

    Totally awesome. I even love the word seventeen. (We are about the same age.) Seventeen was before, everything else is after. Love your blog, Jeanne Marie
