The Lyrics

More or less inspired by a ytmnd about old people using the chorus, it's just a simple parody about some old guy reflecting on when he was a kid.
Sonny, did you know I was born in 1902?
And how old is your daddy?
Nothing to me,
While he was working his first job at Burger King,
I was already retirin',
When he was just a baby,
I was learnin' guitar,

Oh, I, ooh, I'm still alive,
Ey, I, ooh, I'm still alive,
Ey, I, ooh, I'm still alive,
Ey, oh!

At one time,
I was a young man, too,
Before the TV,
And cars, too,
I can remember my childhood to this very day,
The mud, crud,
Ooh,
You young ones,
Have it so easy,
These days,

I, I'm still alive,
Ey, I, ooh, I'm still alive,
Ey, I, ooh, I'm still alive,
Ey, I, ooh, I'm still alive,
Ey, ooh,

We didn't have no telephones,
Or websites,
But I'm still alive, I said,
Oh, grew up on dirt and beans,
Worked in the coal mines,
And when I worked, I worked my guts out,

I, ooh, I'm still alive,
Ey, I, ooh, I'm still alive,
Ey, I, ooh, I'm still alive,
I, ooh, I'm still alive,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

A penny an hour,
Dirt soup for dinner,
Lived in a shoebox,
Slept on the cement,
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Yeah, I realized it was going to suck about half way through, as well.

A few minor pacing stumbles, but nothing major. Pearl Jam songs are, IMHO, very difficult to parody perfectly pacing-wise. This one didn't suck. 5s
