"Old Men (Lay Down)" as written by and Roger Taylor....
Take a trip to China if you dare
They gotta lotta old men shooting young men there
Iran or Russia or the USA
Old men lay down
Lay down old man you've had your fun
Lay down old man your time is run
Lay down your arms let in the light
Old man lay down

Old men with old clothes
Old men with minds closed
Old men with bad teeth
They own you they own me

Take a trip to China if you dare
They gotta lotta old men shooting young men there
Old men with bad teeth
They own you they own me

Old men in big cars
Old men with missiles
Old men on TV
They own newspapers and they own me

Have you seen a politician with a mile wide smile
Who didn't love himself more than a mother loves her child
Old men on TV
They own newspapers and they own me

Take a trip to China if you dare
Look at Iran - Jesus
Look at Russia - they're getting better
Or the USA - maybe they're getting better
The Lebanon and the Vatican and Panama, most of South America

Old men on TV
They own you they own me
Old men lay down your arms let in the light
Lay down your arms let in the light
Old men lay down
Take a hike - get out of here - get on your bike
You had your time your time is run
