  I think of many years ago
It seems like yesterday
Time flys by more quickly
As I grow more elderly

Minuites last for hours
hours last for days
This is what time is like
when a child plays

Time slows down
when I want it to pass
but theres never enough
when I want it to last

Now Ive a question for you
with a simple reply
How long is time
And how fast does it go by?

Hardly a simple question, Tim! Very astute and clever at 16, too. I have a simple question for you at 31: Can you answer that 15-year old? ;) Me neither.
