  • That was me, at the scout camp, in the school play
    Spade and bucket by the sea, that was me

    That was me, playing conkers at the bus stop
    On a blanket in the blue bells, that was me

    The same me that stands here now
    When I think that all this stuff
    Can make a life that's pretty hard to take it in, that was me

    Well that was me, royal iris, on the river
    Mercy beat n' with the band, that was me

    Yeah that was me, sweating cobwebs under contract
    In the cellar, on TV, that was me

    The same me that stands here now
    If fate agreed that all of this
    To make a lifetime, who am I to disagree, that was me

    That was me, acappella at the alter
    In the middle of the picture, that was me

    That was me at the party, sweatin' cobwebs
    In a cellar on TV, yeah that was me

    The same me that stands here now
    When I think that all this stuff
    Can make a life that's pretty hard to take it in, that was me
    That was me, yeah, that was me! Writer/s: PAUL MCCARTNEY
