The Lyrics

When a man gets to be as old as 300 parodies he can't help thinking that maybe he's becoming a bit outdated, luckily this place keeps me young at heart!
Ninety-ninety-ninety-four winters or more
I wanna be updated
Senile and slow, I come from the yore
I wanna be updated
Just get me out the rocker, and make me 2.0
Buried, buried, buried, my friends I've seen them go
I can't control my bladder, I can't reach down my toes
No mo-o-o-o-ore

Ninety-ninety-ninety-four winters or more
I wanna be updated
Senile and slow, no heirs I care for
I wanna be updated
Just get me to a market, where I can be restored
Blurry, blurry, blurry, my eyes aren't like before
I can't stand in the shower, I wake myself with snore
Galo-o-o-o-ore

Ninety-ninety-ninety-four winters or more
I wanna be updated
Senile and slow, I kindly implore
I wanna be updated
Just get me to the diner, for something good to go
Curry, curry, curry, and prunes create a flow
I can't control my colon, hence I can't span a ho
Gro-o-o-o-o-os!

Ninety-ninety-ninety-four winters or more
I wanna be updated
Senile and slow, I've told you before
I wanna be updated
Just get me to a doctor, my prostate's gonna blow
Furry, furry, furry, the ears are there no more
When I'm without my glasses, I'm falling to the floor
Done fo-o-o-o-or

Blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - When young

NURSING HOME STAFF:
"He needs to be updated"

Blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - World war

NURSING HOME STAFF:
"He needs to be updated"

Blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - Mae West!

NURSING HOME STAFF:
"He needs to be updated"

Blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - blah - All's crap!

NURSING HOME STAFF:
"He needs to be updated"

There's no guarantee that it will still be there when you (whoever you are) read this, but I found the original song here:

Congratulations on 300 parodies! "I can't control my colon, hence I can't span a ho"; I'll have to PM you with a rather sick story regarding this line. The "blahs" and nursing home staff lines were inspired.

Good one...I could use a little updating my self...or even, just dating

Tremendous fun, Peter....a parody about old age done to a punk classic was inspired (Half the Ramones are dead now, anyway) 555

Congratulations, Peter. The first 300 are the hardest. The next 700 are slightly easier. Beyond that, only Malcolm Higgins, John Barry and William Tong know for sure. Kristof: In fact, three of the four are dead. Only drummer Tommy remains from the original lineup.

(SOTM) Giggle factor high on this one. Too bad the original guys didn't stick around long enough to be able to sing it.

(SOTM) HAHAHA! Wow, I'm officially afraid of getting old now

(SOTM) Legendary OS choice, some of the funniest lyrics I have read so far for SOTM (TMTM, by the way), hilarious parody subject, Peter, you have done justice to a Ramones classic. Though the Ramones are mostly dead, the Stones could maybe sing this on their next tour. Great job! 555

(SOTM) See above. Peter, this is really great stuff. Excuse me while I blend my dinner. ;-)

(SOTM) "Curry, curry, curry, and prunes create a flow I can't control my colon, hence I can't span a ho" just made me burst out laughing.
The close was great too! 555

Ditto. Pretty funny, though the concept has been overworked recently. -- MM

(SOTM) The exploding prostate and the Mae West lines cracked me up in a big way. The "ninety-four winters" could have been varied but I'm not complaining, great great stuff.

Ageing never sounded so funny!!!!

(SOTM) If Pete needs updating... I think I might need 'down-dating' i.e. parodying more old songs!

(SOTM) Ah, just chug a liter or two of cloudberry liqueur and go jump in the sauna ... that oughta Finnish you off.

(SOTM) I forgot to send that PM; perhaps I'm a bit senile too! See above!

(SOTM) I'm not old enough to really appreciate old age humor, but this is a good parody.

Congrats on 300 old geezer! Fun song to sing along with, and I can start to relate to the old man humor!
