  • The strangest story ever told
    Was how I got to be this old
    At the close of WWII,
    My folks did the did that the young folks do
    In '46 out I came, this world would never be the same!


    I don't know why, I'm not sure how
    I wined up here to the here and the now
    He don't know why, he's not sure how
    He made it here to the here and the now!

    In the 1950s I was just a kid
    Did all the kids stuff you people did
    I rode a bike, I threw a ball, ?
    The 60s came I ? scary and the parents the ?


    I don't know why, I'm not sure how
    I wined up here to the here and the now
    He don't know why, he's not sure how
    He made it here to the here and the now!

    In the 70s I made it big ? you did
    I took a wife, we had some kids
    Screwed that up and went on ?
    In the 80s I started a brand new life
    Had another kid, I took another wife


    I don't know why, I'm not sure how
    I wined up here to the here and the now
    He don't know why, he's not sure how
    He made it here to the here and the now!

    In the 1990's there I went again
    Made me a few more female friends
    Then.. in love ?
    Had another wife, another blessing event.
    In the 21st century I'm down that old
    My seats staring, my lungs are cold

    It all makes sense the why and the how
    Soon I'll be out of here, the here and the now
    It all makes sense the why and the how
    Soon I'll be out of here, the here and the now Writer/s: LOUDON WAINWRIGHT
