Okay, let's see if we can shake things up a bit.

Many of our favorite bands/individuals are getting older, but still performing. But should they rework their lyrics to reflect where they are now, rather than where they were back then?

Think about some of those classic songs, and reimagine them with "updated lyrics" that reflect their more senior status.

To make it fair, try to keep the songs selected to those prior to about 1990. After all, the groups that came after aren't really that old now, are they?

See what you can come up with.


David Bowie Rock ’n Roll Suicide (1972)

“Time takes a Tramadol, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your Tramadol
The Fox And Friends are calling, they linger, then you forget
Ohhh, you're a rock 'n' roll senior guy.

You're so old you lost it, now you can’t choose it
And the clock won’t wait patiently on your song
You walk past a cafe but you don't eat ‘cause your pants aren’t on
Oh, no, no, no, you're a rock 'n' roll senior guy…”

"There she stood in the street
Smiling from her head to her feet
I said hey, where are my glasses
Maybe she's in need of some molasses"

Ohio Players Love Rollercoaster (1975)

“You give me that funny feeling in my tummy
Ahw sh*t, yeah, that's right huh
Metamucil… of love say what
Metamucil yeah (oohh oohh oohh)

Oh baby you know what I'm talking about
Metamucil… of love
Oh yeah it's Metamucil time…”

Hardly need to mention that our host submitted his entry for this over 40 years ago.

It's called "Life In The Air Age" :wink:

"I see a red pill and I want to chug it back
See colors everywhere I want to get a snack
I see the girls walk by dressed in their nursing clothes
I have to turn my head until my stiffie goes…"

With apologies to The Rolling Stones, who are actually older than me.
