    The first time I heard "Peggy Sue"
    I was 12 years old
    Russians up in rocket ships
    And the war was cold
    Now many wars have come and gone
    Genocide still goes on
    Buddy Holly still goes on
    But his catalog was sold

    First time I smoked
    Guess what – Paranoid
    First time I heard "Satisfaction"
    I was young and unemployed
    Down the decades every year
    Summer leaves and my birthday's here
    And all my friends stand up and cheer
    And say man you're old
    Getting old
    Getting old

    We celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas day
    And Buddha found nirvana along the lotus way
    About 1,500 years ago the messenger Mohammed spoke
    And his wisdom like a river flowed
    Through hills of gold
    Wisdom is old
    The Koran is old
    The Bible is old
    Greatest story ever told

    Work'em out

    The human race has walked the earth for 2.7 million
    And we estimate the universe at 13-14 billion
    When all these numbers tumble into your imagination
    Consider that the lord was here before creation
    God is old
    We're not old
    God is old
    He made the mold

    Take your clothes off
    Adam and Eve
