The Lyrics

With the Winter Olympics coming up, so does this question: Should there be an age limit for skiers?
(guitar opening)

He was the thunder on the mountain.
He was the lightning on the snow.
But now he's got more snow upon his roof.
He'll still give it a go.
He climbs up high-de-high
up to the pro-steep run.
He climbs up high-de-high.
The old man
goes down the slope.

Way back in nineteen forty-seven
just like a train all full of coal
went down the mountain with high speed and pride
but he's older than Bob Dole.

He oughta hidey-hide.
He oughta jump up, run away.
He doesn't hidey-hidey-hide.
The old man
goes down the slope.

(Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!)

(guitar break)

Good thing the river's frozen over.
But he's still howling like a hound.
There's a tree with hole shaped like him.
He didn't get around.

I think he died, he died.
He shouldn't have gone down again.
I think he died, he died.
The old man
carried down the slope.
The old man
carried down the slope.

Oy!
I think he
I think he
I think he
died, he died, he died!

(guitar fadeout)

lol. Which skier is this and how old is he? Or is this hypothetical?

Last I checked, it was hypothetical. Let's hope it stays that way.
