The Lyrics

they were just another band out of london
and at first they had to play for free
started out in the bars...then, became big stars
of the original, there still are three
yeah, they've made a lot of money
amazin', how this band has survived
but now they're showin' their age
when they climb on that stage
jesus !...what a crime !

really old band
everybody's eighty
fat and lazy
and antiquated
dull's their music
way way way...yeah yeah yeah yeah

dancin' with a seat that is saggy
with a set list that is always the same
back in sixty-nine, everything was fine
nowadays, they're up in flames
pushin' their really old music
never worried 'bout the zest that was missin'
when they get up on the stage
its so easy to gauge

really old band
everybody's eighty
fat and lazy
and antiquated
dull's their music
way way way...yeah yeah yeah yeah

playin', with no thoughts of retirin'
they'll hobble to that stage, tonight
they used to be big stars
now, their death can't be far
and i think its just a terrible sight
signed up to a multi-year contract
you know that's risky expectations
cause i fear at any time, they could go
and finally gather vegetation

really old band
everybody's eighty
fat and lazy
and antiquated
dull's their music
way way way...yeah yeah yeah yeah

I'm beginning to think the Stones have replaced Dubya as AmIRighters' favorite punching bag!

The sad thing is the Stones at 80 would rock more than most new acts today. 5 Centrum Silvers
