"Gin & Jag" as written by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe....
Don't stare at the setting sun
Say youth is wasted on the young
Don't stare at the setting sun
Say youth is wasted on the young

Pour another gin, love
And go easy on the tonic
Tonight I'm in a frisky mood
And going supersonic
Boredom abhors a vacuum
A settement I applaud
There's alot of room at the inn tonight
But i trust you won't be bored

This is quite a view, you must admit
Some would pay the earth
Be careful with that decanter, dear
Do you know how much it's worth
I made a pile and got out quick
I never got a gong for services rendered
But it's not a case of where did it all go wrong

When we chatted on the internet
I was looking for more than a friend
In my day I was quite a catch
I wish you'd seen me then
Young and single, free and easy
Handsome in my prime
Grab it while you can is my advice
Don't waste your bloody time

Never married, no kids that I know of
Didn't want a litter
Might have been a mistake I admit
But you don't want to end up bitter
Yes, I had a few golden years
Times I won't forget
But don't write me off as an old has-been
It's not all over yet
I know my taste isn't eveyones
I'm a little too gin and jag
If you don't want to give it a go tonight
You may as well pack your bags

When we chatted on the internet
I was looking for more than a friend
In my day I was quite a catch
I wish you'd seen me then

Don't stare at the setting sun
Say youth is wasted on the young
Don't stare at the setting sun
Say youth is wasted on the young
Don't stare at the setting sun
Say youth is wasted on the young
Don't stare at the setting sun
Say youth is wasted on the young

I'm a little too gin and jag
I'm a little too gin and jag
I'm a little too gin and jag
I'm a little too gin and jag
