Old fools, dancing
Old fools who believe
That they can dance and sing
And fall in love
after all: love?

Old wines, old shoes
Old lines who'd have thought
they would ever reuse
like, I love you
Surprise! I love you

Flowers, long drive
Old fools, new lives

Old fools, dancing
Old rules take the backseat to
new romancing
Long drives, flowers
Old fools, new lovers.

    General Commentthis was the 1st song i listened from distortion. it made me happy to know that stephin wouldn't disappoint me, this record sounds very much magnetic fields with it's power to shake me to the core like no other band.

    Well Merritt's only 40 something but he seems to know what's in store should you be foolish enough to keep looking for love

    General Commenti like how the slow stuttering rhythm reinforces the image of "old fools" not realizing they aren't really able to dance anymore (at least, not without providing inadvertent amusement and/or a target of disdain, for those still young)
