It is the evening of the day;
I sit and watch the children play.
Smiling faces I can see, but not for me
I sit and watch as tears go by.

My riches can't buy everything;
I want to hear the children sing.
All I hear is the sound of rain falling on the ground;
I sit and watch as tears go by.

It is the evening of the day;
I sit and watch the children play.
Smiling faces I can see, but not for me -
I sit and watch as tears go by.

(Instrumental interlude - first 2 lines of verse)

Doing things I used to do, they think are new;
I sit and watch as tears go by.
