Since I've known you, we've always been together
In that time the love we shared, we vowed would last forever
Yet marriage is a subject you approve
Providing it has nothing whatsoever to do with you

And much as I respect that view
I have to state my case
Though I'm far from being over the hill
It occurs to me with each passing day

That I'm not getting any younger
God knows it wasn't my idea
The years that used to take an eternity to make
Are now passing at what seems like one a week

If only we'd have met when I was your age
I wouldn't have this awful fear I get when I leave your place
You don't know how upsetting it can be
To hear you talk of future plans, none of which seem to include me

Blue jeans and high heel boots are great
Of course I still wear mine quite a bit
But it's now more apparent than ever before
Despite keeping myself fairly fit

That I'm not getting any younger
Even those gray hairs are now starting to appear
And there are lines under my eyes
That never used to be this size

Even though it could be due to lack of sleep
Something tells me that it's more to do with passing years

At times I think perhaps it would be better
If rather than go on this way I posted you a letter
Explaining in great detail why I feel the way things are between us
Suits you much more than it suits me

You have your whole life ahead of you
Well, damn it, I also have mine
And unless I am by nature a freak
There's no mistaking those deadly signs

And I'm not getting any younger
Look closely now and you will see
The rebel in his teens
Who thought all adults were obscene

Is now somewhat disenchanted with the news
That kids today have got no respect for his views

And I'm not getting any younger
Gone are those days when school reports were all I feared
Now for the first time in my life
I'm seeing something I don't like

And I'm powerless to prevent from happening
One day you'll find out for yourself just what I mean
