This getting older, aint for cowards
This getting older, there's a lot to go through
Aint a gonna need this body much longer
Aint a gonna need this body much more

Well, I cant see much like I used to
And I cant run like the wind
I don't sleep more than just a few hours
I cant remember where Ive been

Ain't a gonna need this body much longer
Ain't a gonna need this body much more
I put in a ten million hours
Washed up and worn out for sure

Well, all my friends are sick or dying
And Im here all by myself
All I got left is a head full of memories
And a thought of my upcoming death

Ain't a gonna need this body much longer
Ain't a gonna need this body much more
I put in a ten million hours
Washed up and worn out for sure

Well, I know one thing Id die easy
And I know my life is not in vain
Because I loved and I fought with many
And the people they loved me just the same

Ain't a gonna need this body much longer
Ain't a gonna need this body much more
I put in a ten million hours
Washed up and worn out
Washed up and worn out for sure

This getting older, well it aint for cowards
This getting older, there's a lot to go through
