Track Name: Old Oak Tree
The old oak tree that we climbed upon
Don’t you remember times when we were young?

When we were children,
we breathed so free and easy

We played in the fields and we played in the sun
We laughed together when the day was done

Happy go lucky, days seemed so long
We would play together and we knew no wrong

We were so good, we were so young,
The world was simple and life seemed long….
Track Name: Sweet Charity
Oh sweet charity come and put your hand in mine
Oh sweet charity take the pennies from my eyes

You don’t seem to grow any older
At least you look the same to me
Please don’t grow any colder
Oh no, sweet charity

Oh my darling, keep that smile upon your face
Oh my darling, you put me in my place

You don’t seem to grow any older
At least you look the same to me
Please don't grow any colder
Oh no, sweet charity

The clouds are coming and the rain is on its way
The clouds are dark and black, no hope of sun today

You love me in the morning
And you bring the sun to me
Don’t ever change or grow older
Oh no, sweet charity

Oh my darling, come and put your hand in mine
Oh my darling, come and take the pennies from my eyes

You don’t seem to grow any older
At least you look the same to me
Don’t ever change or grow colder
Oh no, sweet charity
