He really liked flannel with bib overalls
If you looked in his closet it's all that you saw
He'd dress up on Sunday and thought he looked neat
In a green leisure suit with wing tips on his feet

An' I hated the music he played in the car
It's hard to believe he called those people stars
They sang through their noses like they all had colds
I guess it's hard to be cool when you're 40 years old

An' I was 15 and real hip with long hair
And I'd ask momma why's daddy so square
And I couldn't believe all that he didn't know
I guess it's hard to be cool when you're 40 years old

The night I turned 20 she came with the news
Scared half to death didn't know what to do
I told her I'm but it's not too late
There's a doctor I've heard of that fixes mistakes

And I thought he was working and I was alone
But he was standing behind me when I hung up the phone
He said son there's a few things you don't know about
If you listen real close we can figure this out

'Cause I was 18 and as wild as they came
When one night a young girl told me the same thing
And you wouldn't be here if she hadn't said no
You see it's hard to be cool when you're 20 years old

These days I like flannel and old Levi jeans
And I look at my young boy who just turned 15
And I know what he's thinkin' but it's ok you know
You see it's hard to be cool when you're 15 years old
