lyrics

Over the hill and further still,
My love has gone away.
She wanted to follow that summer crowd,
Me, I wanted to stay.
Now bear in mind I’m still a young man,
Whose happiest at home,
But the dice has fallen, the cards are dealt,
And now Im ready to roam..
La la la la la la ,la la la la la la, la la, la la
I’ll sail the seven seas
And climb the Atlas Mountains.
Maybe we’ll meet again?
But I would not go counting,
Counting down the days.
Now money comes to monied sons,
Well Im sorry, but that’s not me!

For the things that I could not give to you-
And the grief that you took from me.

Now bear in mind I’m still a young man,
And I’ll take anything that’s thrown.
But the straw has broke that old camels back,
So now dear heart off you go..
La la la la la la ,la la la la la la, la la, la la
And sail the seven seas
And climb the Atlas Mountains.
Maybe we’ll meet again?
But I would not go counting,
Counting down the days.
Counting down, counting down, counting down,
counting down the days
Counting down, counting down, counting down,

counting down the days
Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you’ll get rich,
Or modestly live off the land.
And hopefully all of your great designs,
Will work out just like you planned.
But I’ll bear in mind Im still a young man,
And I think things will work out just fine.
And I hope some day we’ll be friends again,
And you can add your lies to mine.
La la la la la la ,la la la la la la, la la, la la
Sail the seven seas
And climb the Atlas Mountains.
Maybe we’ll meet again?
But I would not go counting,
Counting down the days.
Counting down, counting down, counting down
the days
Eat your heart out, count down the days
Counting down, counting down, counting down,
counting down the days
Eat your heart out
Count down the days
Eat your heart out, count the days down
