The first time I heard â??Peggy Sueâ?? 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 â??Satisfactionâ?? 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 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 Mohammad spoke And his wisdom like a river flowed Through hills of gold Wisdom is old The Koran is old The Bible's old Greatest story ever told Disagreements? 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 there before creation God is old We're not old God is old He made the mold Take your clothes off Adam and Eve © 2017
