The Lyrics

The pains of aging
I see some grey hair and I want them painted black
No color in my hair , I want them to turn black
I see a girl walk by dressed in her summer clothes
She sees all my grey hair and she turns up her nose

I see lines in my face and they do show my age
I do grow older and it causes me to rage
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
They all like blacker hair, mine just happens to be grey

I look inside myself, my arteries have plaque
I see all my grey hair, must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your hair turns from black

I wake up every night and have to go to pee
I could not foresee this thing happening to me
If I work hard enough and do a daily run
Perhaps I will delay onset of saggy buns

I see some grey hairs and I want them painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see a girl walk by dressed in her summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my grey hair goes

Hmm, hmm, hmm...

I wanna see my hair painted black, black as night, black as coal
I wanna see my buns , blotted out, and my thighs.
I wanna see ‘em painted, painted, painted, painted black, yeah !

Some pacing problems, but very funny!

In my case, I could add, "I've got a bald spot and I wish it would grow back"

So that's why The Who hoped they'd die before they got old. Well, one of them got his wish.
