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.

 

From the song As Tears Go By (1964), written by Rolling Stones members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (both born 1943), and their manager Andrew Loog Oldham (born 1944).
