I Just Cannot Be This Age (Exp. Lyric)
 
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
But there's no way I'm like Willie; I ain't outlived my dick
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

Description
Short Song Description:
So the guy finds out how old he is and is in complete denial.
Long Song Description:
So the guy finds out how old he is and is in complete denial. The "there's no way I'm like Willie" line comes from a famous Willie Nelson quote. A few years ago, somebody asked him what it was like to be 75. He said: "Ok, except that I've outlived my dick."
Story Behind the Song:
Age can creep up on a person, especially when you feel good and are very active. And when you realize how old you actually are, it's a bitch.
