Yes, I Regret

Yes, I regret

The scornful dissipation

Of my salad days

When I was strong,

 

Believe me,

They didn’t last too long,

Believe me,

They didn’t last too long.

 

Yes, I regret

All that I squandered

O’er the course

Of about fifteen years,

 

Believe me,

I’ve cried quite a sea of tears,

Believe me,

I’ve cried quite a sea of tears,

 

Yes, I regret

If I e’er acted cavalierly

Towards any who sought to love me

With a trusting heart,

 

Believe me,

I’m not so proud of my past,

Believe me,

I’m not so proud of my past.
