lyrics

Middle-aged, last time on the field,
it's been a good career.
I got this girlfriend, she's been good to me,
maybe now things quiet, and we can move on in.

They told me not to spend my money quickly,
and that I shouldn't drink too much.
They told me I should look into some savings,
and not to get too far out of touch.

Well age came quick, yeah it snuck on me.
And that second kid we had made it hard to breathe.
I still see the old guys now and then,
Ray's divorced, Max got cancer, and Willie still gets lit.

They told me there'd be press jobs waiting after,
and that I should keep myself in shape.
My wife told me that she was sick of losing,
and half of nothing was all hers to take.

54 now and it doesn't really seem that old...
