about

A shoutout to all the rockers with walkers out there.

lyrics

Looked in the mirror and what did I see
A double-chin geezer leering at me
I said hey you, bald fat and farty
I don't recall inviting you to the party

Get old — There's nothing to it
Get old — You're gonna do it
Get old — it's what happens when you live
And it ain't so bad if you consider the alternative

I seen my buddy and he turned blue
he said my gawd boy what happened to you
I said it's normal so don't be perplexed
but it's going round son, you could be next

Get old — hey I enjoyed it
Get old — you can't avoid it
Get old — you better find a higher purpose
Or you can help reduced the population surplus

Cars and guitars and rock n roll stars
entropy squashes em all
Take a little ride on the arrow of time
But don't fly higher than you're willing to fall
(ooh shakin all over)

Everything gets old child it just makes you sick
But I didn't figure on it happening this quick
It keeps me running, too busy to scratch
Ever since 50 it's been patch patch patch

I got old — just like Ulysses
Get old — it ain't for sissies
Get old — you better love that withered visage
Just think of all the folks who never got the privledge
Get old — it's gonna getcha
Get old — I'm gonna betcha
Get old — it's what happens when you live
And it ain't so bad if you consider the alternative
