about

a middle finger to youth idolisation :)

lyrics

peak when I'm sixty
serious at seventy
soaking up the infinite life force energy
I've never not known this
in my biochemistry
greatest hits tape release date on my centenary
I bet you all a tenner each
I'll be victory lapping
hundred legs like a centipede
picture me rapping to the death
yes indeed
while these kids are just beach boys
sunshine
tenerife
anyway
I used to be young back then in my twenty days
knew I was an unfinished version of
who i would become
couldn't wait
knew that youth wouldn't stay
now my hair is turning good and grey
got my ten thousand hours put away
learned a lot of shit through mistakes
learned a whole lot of shit just through living
and I wouldn't want to change it for a thing
now it's time for me and you to say

chorus:
fuck being young I'm a peak when I'm sixty
(he's gonna peak when he's sixty)
I'm done being young I'm a peak when I'm sixty

not so very naughty at nought
I was fresh sheet
blank page
old soul with a clean memory bank age
ten ten
eight eight
turned ten
that's great
wanted to be everything I could imaginate
twenty? haha oh damn
really thought I knew it all
big fella
grown man
did a lot of shit
did a hella lot of everything
then I turned thirty it was time for me to settle in
then a new dawn
very strange thing
turn forty
feel new born
very strong urge to turn it to the third degree
get my weapons sharp for my golden anniversary
sharpen up the arsenal I'd spent my life assembling
show the how it's fucking done
audiences trembling
show them how to ride a fucking tidal wave
till it's time to take my final bow
but for now you know it's time to say

chorus
