Saga Of The Ageing Orphan

Album: Thin Lizzy (1971)
  • Father and I waved goodbye
    As we went to look
    Uncle Peter was writing a book
    And his mama was starting to cook
    And she's aging

    We had come in search of one
    Who evades us all
    Never heeds the call
    If only someone could stall
    This aging

    So I'll go and hope and know
    That my time is near
    Laughing through the years
    Having only fears
    Of aging, of aging
