getting old is strictly for the young
and this day is a lie

throwing pennies at the hit parade
the concrete will shine

or better yet let's make it ticker-tape
i will dress you in white

there's cracks in your ivory from this
weather pattern
there's cracks in you i can see from this
goddamn makeup

aging so gracefully with the help of your fashion orderly
and you got under my skin, again

you'll soon find that someone somewhere everywhere
will get theirs
you'll soon find that someone somewhere everywhere
will get theirs

uh uh oh uh uh oh uh uh oh uh uh oh

there's cracks in your ivory from this
weather pattern
there's cracks in you i can see from this
goddamn makeup

aging so gracefully with the help of your plastic surgery
and you got under my skin, again
aging so goddamn beautifully cause you paid for it
i hope it fits, i hope it fits
