I've got a couple more years on you babe, and that's all
I've had more chances to fly, and more places to fall
And it ain't that I'm wiser, it's only that I've spent
More time with my back to the wall
And I've picked up a couple more years on you babe, that's all

I've walked a couple more roads than you babe, that's all
And I'm tired of runnin' while you're only learnin' to crawl
And you're headin' somewhere, but I've been to somewhere
And found it was nowhere at all
And I've picked up a couple more years on you babe, that's all

Now sayin' goodbye, girl, don't never come easy at all
But you've gotta fly 'cause you're hearin' them young eagles call
And someday when you're older you'll smile at a man strong and tall
And you'll say, "I've got a couple more years on you babe, that's all"

You'll say,"I've got a couple more years on you babe, that's all
I've had more chances to fly, and more places to fall
And it ain't that I'm wiser, it's only that I've spent
More time with my back to the wall
And I've picked up a couple more years on you babe, and that's all"
