Wanna Know What I Think…?
Do you know what I think when you look at me?
Do you know what I want to say?
Do you know how I feel when you go on your way,
And all you remember is glasses and grey?
Hell, I wish I’d met you sooner.
I had one chin and all my own teeth!
Hell, I wish I’d met you long ago,
When this heart could jam to two beats.
But then, if you’d met me sooner,
I’d be just like the rest of my sex:
A young and fit and eager
Sack of hormones perched on two legs.
Do you know what I think when I look at me?
Do you know why I feel betrayed?
What’s the point of a wealth of experience, now
Behind all these crows feet and grey?
(…Nostril hair and dodgy vertebrae…)
(…And a paunch that just won’t go away…)
(Ref. & Outro)
Young bucks might be smoother and stronger,
But I’ve been doing it 30yrs longer.
Show ’em a slip road and off they’ll shoot,
But I’ve learned all the best scenic routes.
Youth and en-thu-sia-sm
Don’t guarantee you…. *he’s done the curriculum
*(Bet you thought I was going to say orgasm) **
**(But now I’ve run out of rhymes for “-asm”)
Yes, I’m not as skinny, hairless or fitter
But, just turn the lights off
And you won’t know what hit ya.
Though I may not come with a guarantee,
In the morning there’s a free cup of tea.
And that’s, pretty much, all I wanted to say.
