it's been awhile so i think i'll ring up
ive got some things that i want to bring up
its been awhile since we added things up
so ??? and we'll see what springs up
it took us ages to know
just where we were
and what happened last night's a complete blur
you must have acted liked like some ???
cause i woke up thinking damn i dont need her

and i saw my way through my younger days too underpaid
and i drank my way through my twenties all the money's gone
and i slept my way through my thirties ???
and its all gone my golden years so hold them dear

and there's this feeling that ive been catching
from some young girl that's oh so fetching
she's got me stammering, stumbling, stretching
???
and will i ever recover my senses
???
it's all a ???? my defenses
the drinks arent killing me but the suspense is

and i saw my way through my younger days too underpaid
and i drank my way through my twenties all the money's gone
and i slept my way through my thirties ???
and its all gone my golden years so hold them dear

and i forgot you grew up just like me
we took the first of life so lightly
and im not sure but i think you might be
the very last thing i think of nightly
its in my skin and my bones it gets stronger
that i cant put up with this for much longer
i speak in dulcet tones just to calm her
cause shes got everything that i long for

and i saw my way through my younger days too underpaid
and i drank my way through my twenties all the money's gone
and i slept my way through my thirties ???
and its all gone my golden years so hold them dear

I dont ever want to go back again, back again

    Lyric Correction/Note changes with **/

    It's been awhile so I think I'll ring up
    I've got some things that I want to bring up
    It's been awhile since we added things up
    So **prune ourselves** and we'll see what springs up
    It took us ages to know just where we were
    And what happened last night's a complete blur
    You must have acted like some *?*old lost straight cure*?* (not completely sure about this correction)
    Cause I woke up thinking damn I dont need her
    --------------------------------------------------------
    And I **sought my way to my younger days through hunger pain**
    And I drank my way through my **twenties on, the money's gone**
    And I slept my way through my thirties **dear, it's purty (mispronouncing 'pretty') clear**
    **That's its all been gone your** golden years so hold them dear
    --------------------------------------------------------
    And there's this feeling that I've been catching
    From some young girl that's oh so fetching
    She's got me stammering, stumbling, stretching,
    **And filling books up, appoint the sections**
    And will I ever recover my senses
    **Or did I stay stuck in barb by your fences**
    It's **time to fortify all** my defenses
    The drinks aren't killing me but the suspense is
