​I'm Over 40 Song

This song is by Tom Wilson.

You say you want a revolution, kid
Yeah, I did too once, seriously, I did
But I'm over forty; I don't care

I was gonna change the world, make the news
Now it's too much hassle just to tie my shoes
I'm over forty; I don't care

Turning 40 is the best
Old guys rule 'cause they couldn't care less
My blood pressure may be way too high
Gimme another doughnut, I'm still alive
I'm gonna rip up every parking ticket
Tell my HMO to stick it
I'm over forty; I don't care

My kids stare at me in a state of shock
'Cause I'm wearing sandals with a pair of black socks
Guess what? I'm over forty; I don't care

Dad, my friends are coming over, what do I say?
Tell 'em I'm a distant relative from Norway
I'm over forty; I don't care

Fancy fashion's not for me
I'm a simple dresser, pretty low key
Just smell the armpits, see if it's clean
Down vest with swim trunks is fine with me
Just give me a stupid lookin' hat and a glass of iced tea
I'm over forty; I don't care

I'm headed to the mall to pick up some new tennis balls for the bottom of my walker

Things messed up kid, life no fun?
Why don't you go tattoo your neck and pierce you tongue
I'm over forty; I don't care

Hey, the country's a mess, the system sucks!
Heh, do like me kid, just give up
I'm over forty; I don't care

You're twenty you get life in gear, livin' fast, play it by ear
By your thirties, you look in the mirror, get that existential fear
By forty, screw it--I'll be dead in 30 years
I'm over forty and I don't care
I'm over forty... Who cares?
