The Lyrics

well, you hate to see the morning
cause your legs ain't got no spring
you'd have sex but you're not able
you're playin' out the string
you've acquired a senior label
but you've got yourself a plan
get a new mercedes-benz, boy
you're tradin' in that ol' sedan

guess a mid-life crisis...gotta hold on me
guess a mid-life crisis...gotta hold on me
guess a mid-life crisis...gotta hold on me
guess a mid life-crisis...gotta really stubborn hold on me

the future once was rosy
where in the world did it go ?
by the way, my hair is grayin'
don't look young no more
this fellow's gettin' older
needs to prove that he still can
guess i'll hook up with a young'un
who seeks a rich rich man

guess a mid-life crisis...gotta hold on me
guess a mid-life crisis...gotta hold on me
guess a mid-life crisis...gotta hold on me
guess a mid life-crisis...gotta really stubborn hold on me

if your ego needs boostin'
well, you'd better start tonight
get some viagra samples
cause this old age, you must fight
and when the mood starts to grab ya
take those pills and wash 'em down
and the next thing you know, boy
oh, you're pleasure-bound

guess a mid-life crisis...gotta hold on me
guess a mid-life crisis...gotta hold on me
guess a mid-life crisis...gotta hold on me
guess a mid life-crisis...gotta really stubborn hold on me

Funny, though a bit depressing to contemplate.

This is a like a prelude to my own "Viagra and Nitro don´t mix" that´s also up today.

Well-rhymed and well-paced to match the original, plus a funny/tasteul treatment of the new subject. Triple 5's here!
