As a young man, I sang along with Alice Cooper’s, “I’m Eighteen (and I Like it!)” – back when I was only seventeen! Can you believe it?
My how things change. Now, when I sing “When I’m Sixty-four” the phrase “many years from now” is figurative, not literal.
I don’t want to admit that I’ve changed; I want the music to change.
Here (of course) are a few suggestions:
Huey Lewis and the News –”I want a new drug, like I saw on TV.
They said to ask my doctor if, it was right for me.”
The Doors- “Hello, I love you, can you tell me my name?”
Roy Orbison- “There she was, with her walker on my street.”
Gerry and the Pacemakers – enough said.
The Who – “Hope I die before I get old,
STOP! NO! WAIT!!!!”
