"Getting Older" as written by Robert Marshall Scott, David Auld Kilgour and Hamish Robert Kilgour....
Oh you're getting older
You're getting older
And you don't know why
And you don't know what to do

Well you're getting older
You're getting older
And you tell yourself
And your tell yourself it too

So don't go out in the kitchen
Or any other place
Yeh don't go out in the open
Or ever show your face

So why don't you do yourself in?
Yeh why don't you do yourself in?

Oh you're getting older
You're getting older
And you don't know why
And you don't know what to do

Well you're getting older
You're getting older
And you tell yourself
And you tell yourself it too

So don't go out in the kitchen
Or any other place
So don't go out in the open
Or ever show your face

So why don't you do yourself in?
Yeh why don't you do yourself in?

Oh la la la la
La la la la
La la la la

So la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la

    General Commenti was completely blown away by this song the first time i heard it.

    It has a great opening riff and intro, which instantly grabs you. Then the song pivots to the body of the song, which has an entirely different memorable melody. It is so instantly catchable and sing-songy, that you completely forget about how awesome that intro was.

    So what does Kilgour, Scott and Kilgour do? They conclude the song with that same awesome intro riff - the one that you had completely forgot, due to being immersed in the beautiful catchy main body of the song.

    Total songwriting oneupmanship: Here is a catchy riff. now, we'll give you a second one that totally makes you forget the first one. need reminding? we'll play the first one again for you at the end. Mind blowing.

    General Commentthis song is inexpressibly good.
    i feel as though i've heard a thousand songs since that were somehow a variation of this one, never quite as good.
