Lyrics

Oh you’re getting older
You’re getting older
And you don’t know why
And you don’t know what to do

Well you’re getting older
You’re getting older
And you tell yourself
And you tell yourself it too

So don’t go out in the kitchen
Or any other place
Yeh don’t go out in the open
Or ever show your face

So why don’t you do yourself in?
Yeh why don’t you do yourself in?

Oh you’re getting older
You’re getting older
And you don’t know why
And you don’t know what to do

Well you’re getting older
You’re getting older
And you tell yourself
And you tell yourself it too

So don’t go out in the kitchen
Or any other place
So don’t go out in the open
Or ever show your face

So why don’t you do yourself in?
Yeh why don’t you do yourself in?

Oh la la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la

So la la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la

 

[The Clean]
