A tune about getting old... and hairy.


My chest is hairy, I guess now i'm all grown up
I find it scary how a late night can be so rough
I can't remember the last time I climbed a tree
And just talking to the babes was a lot harder than I thought it'd be

But I got lucky, I found one that tolerates me
And I guess that in the end... that's the way love's supposed to be
When I look at the scar, where I broke my arm
I wonder... when's the last time that I did anything dangerous?

Take a sip
Take it right from the spicket
And you wipe yourself clean
With the back of your hand
You want out
But you're right in the thick of it
It'd be better to make a change now

I used to be in awe of the ducks on the water
I wouldn't notice em' now if not for my daughter
If I wasn't sleeping, then I was outside
Pretending I was Lord Vader and choking the neighbor's kids
