From the recording Beautiful Lady

Lyrics

VERSE
Somebody asked how old I am, and I could not remember
The best that I could say was something about September
So they asked around, somebody said:
“He’s so damned old he’s died and come back from the dead.”

PRE-CHORUS
When he positively said the number, oh, I almost fainted

CHORUS
I can’t be this age
If I were, I couldn’t have sex
I can’t be this age
I must be Generation X
No, I just cannot be this age

VERSE
Since everyone agrees, I guess the number it will stick
No way I’m givin’ up; no way I’m callin’ in sick
Why just last night I was havin’ sex with a pretty young chick
At least that’s what she said; I hope she wasn’t just playin’ a trick

PRE-CHORUS
What does it say that when I get up I look in the paper to see if I died?

Repeat CHORUS/BRIDGE
They say age is just a number; what’s real is how you feel
I’m feelin’ fine so “Father Time” must be lyin’ to me again

RIDE/Repeat CHORUS/RIDE/Repeat CHORUS/TAG
Now I don’t care what anyone says, I just cannot be this age
