​Watch Me Rock, I'm Over Thirty

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album Final Exam (1978).

Watch me rock I'm over thirty
Watch me get down low and dirty
Watch me rock I'm over thirty now

You young men in your twenties and your teens
Thinkin' you're the only ones that can make the young girls scream
Come on, watch me rock
I'm over thirty now

Like a bottle of wine or a wooden guitar
A hunk of French cheese or a Cuban cigar
Maturity counts in a rock and roll star

I'm a veteran, I ain't no rookie
But when I get out on the road I can still get me some nookie
Watch me rock
I'm over thirty now

I got the energy I just gotta be thrifty
I'll be rockin' and a-rollin' till the ripe old age of fifty
Come on, watch me rock I'm over thirty now

Like a bottle of wine or a wooden guitar
Simone Signoret or a Model T car
Maturity counts in a rock and roll star

(No tickee nor shirtee he's over thirtee)

I won't be done when I'm thirty-one
I won't be through when I'm thirty-two
You better watch me when I'm thirty-three
You get a whole lot more when I'm thirty-four
I hope I'm alive when I'm thirty-five
