The strangest story ever told
Was how I got to be this old
At the close of WWII,
My folks did the did that the young folks do
In '46 out I came, this world would never be the same!

Chorus:
I don't know why, I'm not sure how
I wined up here to the here and the now
He don't know why, he's not sure how
He made it here to the here and the now!

In the 1950s I was just a kid
Did all the kids stuff you people did
I rode a bike, I threw a ball,...
The 60s came I ... scary and the parents the...

Chorus:
I don't know why, I'm not sure how
I wined up here to the here and the now
He don't know why, he's not sure how
He made it here to the here and the now!

In the 70s I made it big... you did
I took a wife, we had some kids
Screwed that up and went on...
In the 80s I started a brand new life
Had another kid, I took another wife

Chorus:
I don't know why, I'm not sure how
I wined up here to the here and the now
He don't know why, he's not sure how
He made it here to the here and the now!

In the 1990's there I went again
Made me a few more female friends
Then. in love...
Had another wife, another blessing event.
In the 21st century I'm down that old
My seats staring, my lungs are cold

It all makes sense the why and the how
Soon I'll be out of here, the here and the now
It all makes sense the why and the how
Soon I'll be out of here, the here and the now
