Old

Album: You're The One (2000)

  • The first time I heard 'Peggy Sue', I was twelve years old
    Russians up in a rocket ships and the war was cold
    Now many wars have come and gone, genocide still goes on
    Buddy Holly still goes on, but his catalog was sold

    First time I smoked, guess what, paranoid
    First time I heard 'Satisfaction', I was young and unemployed
    Down the decades every year, summer leaves and my birthday's here
    And all my friends stand up and cheer

    Say man you're old
    Getting old
    You're old
    You're getting old

    We celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day
    And Buddha found Nirvana along the Lotus Way
    About fifteen hundred years ago the messenger Mohammed spoke
    And his wisdom like a river flowed through hills of gold

    Wisdom is old
    The Koran is old
    The Bible is old
    Greatest story ever told

    Disagreements?
    Work 'em out

    The human races walked the Earth for two point seven million
    And we estimate the universe about thirteen to fourteen billion
    When all these numbers tumble into your imagination
    Consider that the Lord was there before creation

    God is old
    We're not old
    God is old
    He made the mold

    Take your clothes off
    Adam and Eve
