Well, gather around now, you boys and listen to the man
He says we've fought divided but united we will stand
We'll sacrifice the older ones, they're living in the past
We'll burn up their religions and we'll all be free at last

We'll put a hat upon his head and then we'll call him God
And then we'll share our health in him like peas do in a pod
This is the story of a man with a future in his head
But no one ever listens to him when he's dead

We're all getting older
The light is on and bolder
We're all getting older, decay

We'll follow him throughout the land obeying his command
We'll dance a sort of hatred that we think we understand
The children came a-running from their houses of decay
And laid the trust upon a fool who found a better way

He preach the words of wisdom with his hands and with his mouth
Then everyone believed him and then he believed himself
This is the story of a man with a future in his head
But no one ever listens to him when he's dead

We're all getting older
The light is on and bolder
We're all getting older, decay

This morning I had another talk
With the German chancellor, Herr Hitler
Here is the paper which bears
His name upon it as well as mine

We regard the agreement signed last night
As symbolic of the desire of our two peoples
Never to go to war with one another again

We're all getting older
The light is on and bolder
We're all getting older, decay

The year had come and gone and everyone began to see
Why did we follow such a fool in such a mindless way?
Let's turn our hatred to this man, we know he's just a fraud
We crucify him with the rest and find another God

How many times have you heard someone is coming here to say
That from your hell on earth that you will love until your grave
This is the story of a man with nothing in his head
And no one's gonna listen to you when you're dead

We're all getting older
The light is on and bolder
We're all getting older
We're all getting older

We're all getting older
We're all getting older
We're all getting older
We're all getting older
We're all getting older
