I want a double lifetime
I want to start over
Ane lifetimes not enough I need another
Sixty-four years on a practice run
Practice makes perfect Im about half done
I want a double lifetime
I want a double lifetime
I dont want to snuff it
Threescore and ten just aint enough
Feels like finally got it all figured out
Almost free from the shame and the doubt
I want a double lifetime
A lot more time
Thats what I need
I can make my move I can do the deed
I know Im pretty but what do I care
For the afterlife I dont want to go there
I want a double lifetime
Man I deserve it
I want it so bad I even got the nerve
Its gonna take to get down on my bended knees
And make a prayer saying Pretty please
Give me a double lifetime
[Lets play it Jack
Make mine a double]
I want a double lifetime
I wasted my first one
The first time around thats always the worst one
You dont know what youre doing and you just cant wait
You go ahead and do it and then its too late
You need a double lifetime
I led a double life in public and private
I want to lead it again, Im not going to deny it
Im just like you, its true you know
Ask yourself are you ready to go?
You want a double lifetime
A little more time but you know I never
Want to keep living forever and ever
I know it sounds funny if the truth be told
But a hundred and twenty dont seem that old
I want a double lifetime
Not going to get it
But if a miracle happens you know Im gonna let it
If I eat enough yogurt maybe I might
And the second time around Im gonna get it right
Give me a double lifetime
