Old Friends (song)
Old friends Old friends Sat on their park bench Like bookends A newspaper blown through the grass Falls on the round toes Of the high shoes Of the old friends. Old friends Winter companions The old men Lost in their overcoats Waiting for the sun The sounds of the city Sifting through trees Settles like dust On the shoulders Of the old friends. Can you imagine us Years from today Sharing a park bench quietly? How terribly strange To be seventy. Time it was, And what a time it was It was A time of innocence A time of confidences. Long ago

Old friends, old friends Sat on their park bench like bookends A newspaper blown through the grass. Falls on the round toes Of the high shoes of the old friends Old friends, winter companions, the old men Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sunset The sounds of the city sifting through trees Settle like dust on the shoulders of the old friends Can you imagine us years from today Sharing a park bench quietly?
Their clean productions and pristine vocal harmonies made their records among the best-sounding albums of that era. But it was the quality of the songs that truly helped make some of those records into timeless classics. In Paul Simon , the duo had one of the better songwriters of their generation, especially as a lyricist. Simon originally wrote the song as a darker piece for Garfunkel, who he felt sang too many light ballads as a solo artist. But they recorded the song together, and it wound up being included on both of their solo albums. Paul Simon took a dramatic step forward as a writer with 'America,' for which he dropped his carefully crafted approach to modern folk-rock in favor of a pell-mell unrhymed structure that's the musical equivalent of free verse. The song details a bus trip he undertook with his then-girlfriend Kathy.
