"My Next Thirty Years" as written by Marv Green, Chris Lindsey, Aimee Mayo and Bill Luther....
I think I'll take a moment celebrate my age
End of an era and the turning of a page
Now it's time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

In my next thirty years I'm gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I've done
Maybe now I've conquered all my adolescent fears
And I'll do it better in my next thirty years

My next thirty years I'm gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I'm doin' here in my next thirty years

For my next thirty years I'm gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe I'll remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here in my next thirty years
In my next thirty years

    General CommentI can't believe no one's commented on this. This is such an awesome song, all about looking at middle age as a new beggining, instead of a downhill slope. About living with the lessons you've learned from the mistakes you've made.

    General CommentI wouldn't call 30 "middle-age." But, yeah, this song is about realizing that the "youthful" days are over and dealing with the big 3-0 and getting older.

    He has perspective. He's mellowed. He's ready to celebrate it. He's accepted the fact that the wonder years have passed.
