If I Had My Time Again

by Clive James and Pete Atkin

If I had my time again
There'd be no days wasted
In playing hard to get
As for now, all I regret
Are the joys untasted

If I had my time again
You would find me bolder
Not hard to get to know
On the mark, all set to go
And no cold shoulder

We've been told in every generation
By the ladies in the magazines
To keep our distance, keep our fascination
Well, they can tell it to the marines

If I had my time again
It could mean disaster
I'd be burning to begin
I guess I wouldn't always win
But at least I'd be moving faster
