Story Behind the Song

An old family friend long since passed


Uncle Sid

Uncle Sid
At heart he's still a kid
Born back in 1920
Decided he needed some money
Instead of feeling grief
He ended up drilling teeth

Uncle Sid
I think he's still--still a kid
Way back in '42
He met his love, oh so true
Marion was her name
And he never was the same

I remember Uncle Sid all those years ago
He was dressed in a major's cap
So proud, don't you know

And I remember the trumpet he played
And I remember all the tooth decay
And I remember digging claims out on the bay
Yes I remember all those days

Uncle Sid
There's no doubt he's still a kid
In '85 had a heart attack
But y'know he's coming back
It's good to be alive, at 65


I remember Uncle Sid
All those years ago
He was dressed in a colonel's cap
So proud don't you know

And I remember the sailing crew
And I remember the hair that never grew
And I remember there are so few
Like Uncle Sid--oh so true

Uncle Sid
Now I know he's still a kid
Happy birthday your friends are here
Gather round give him three good cheers
To that one great guy and still a kid
Uncle Sid
