I Wish I Knew Then What I Know Now Lyrics

I Wish I Knew Then What I Know Now Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Poor old Grandad

I laughed at all his words

I thought he was a bitter man

He spoke of women's ways

"They trap you, then they use you

Before you even know

Well, love is blind and you're far too kind

Don't ever let it show"


[Chorus]

I wish that I knew what I know now

When I was younger

I wish that I knew what I know now

When I was stronger


[Verse 2]

The can-can such a pretty show

Will steal your heart away

But backstage back on Earth again

The dressing rooms are grey

They come on strong and it ain't too long

'Fore they make you feel a man

But love is blind and you soon will find

You're just a boy again


[Piano Solo]


[Verse 3]

When you want her lips, you get her cheek

Makes you wonder where you are

If you want some more then she's fast asleep

Leaves you twinkling with the stars

Poor young grandson, there's nothing I can say

You'll have to learn, just like me

And that's the hardest way, ooh la la

Ooh la la la la, yeah


[Chorus]

I wish that I knew what I know now

When I was younger

I wish that I knew what I know now

When I was stronger

Spanish Version Lyrics

[Verso 1]

Pobre abuelo

Me reĂ­ de todas sus palabras

Pensé que era un hombre amargado

HablĂł de las formas de las mujeres

"Te atrapan, luego te usan

Antes de que te des cuenta

Bueno, el amor es ciego y eres demasiado amable

Nunca dejes que se vea "


[Coro]

Ojalå supiera lo que sé ahora

Cuando era mĂĄs joven

Ojalå supiera lo que sé ahora

Cuando era mas fuerte


[Verso 2]

El can-can un espectĂĄculo tan bonito

RobarĂĄ tu corazĂłn

Pero detrĂĄs del escenario en la Tierra de nuevo

Los vestidores son grises

Vienen fuertes y no es demasiado

Antes de que te hagan sentir un hombre

Pero el amor es ciego y pronto encontrarĂĄs

Eres solo un chico otra vez


[Piano Solo]


[Verso 3]

Cuando quieres sus labios, obtienes su mejilla

Te hace preguntarte dĂłnde estĂĄs

Si quieres un poco mĂĄs, ella estĂĄ profundamente dormida.

Te deja centelleando con las estrellas

Pobre nieto, no hay nada que pueda decir

Vas a tener que aprender como yo

Y esa es la forma mĂĄs difĂ­cil, ooh la la

Ooh la la la la, sĂ­


[Coro]

Ojalå supiera lo que sé ahora

Cuando era mĂĄs joven

Ojalå supiera lo que sé ahora

Cuando era mas fuerte
