The Lyrics

Another salute parody This time it goes out to everydrummer who's an older dude,And is still playing. Keep it going!Long live rock! (A salute to the guitarists,bassists, and singers is on the way)
He got his first real drum set
Bought it from a five and dime
Now he's got a wrinkled head
And the drummer is 69

Him and some guys from school
Had a band and they made some dough
Jimi quit, and Angus got married
He shoulda known, the direction they would go
But how he looks right now,
The drummer seemed to've lived forever
And if he had the choice,
Yeah, he'd get himself a new wheelchair
Now he has kids and an aging wife

Ain't no use in his aging
Cause he's got a drum to play
Spends his evenings up in an airplane
Plays drums for the band all day yeah!
Standin' on a drummer's stand
He's playing songs around forever
Oh and when he breaks his hands
He knew he needed medical cover
Now he has kids and an aging wife
And the drummer is 69

Man he's saw passing time
He's not young and restless
He's got a wise old mind
I guess good bands can last forever, forever, yeah

And now his face is changing
Look at his lips they're protruding wrong
Sometimes when he plays his old drum set
He takes some pills to help play the songs

Standin' on a drummer's stand
He's playing songs around forever
Oh and when he breaks his hands
He knew he needed medical cover
Now he has kids and an aging wife
And the drummer is 69
