Take a rest, take a break
Man, you're gonna hit the wall
And no one here wants to try
To catch a guy who wants to fall
Cause this ain't like the old days
The shit parades don't get you a pretty girl anymore, no no
Take a walk, take a seat
What's with all the vitriol?
Ease up on the curtain call

Give it up, son
You're just too old to die young
Nothing goes to 11
When you're this far from 21
Don't get me wrong, it was greatness
Getting wasted at the top of our lungs
But give it up, son
You're just too old to die young

What's the rush?
The Beatles been broken up since 70-some
Is it cause the ramparts you watched
Were down in Baltimore?
I wish I had a time machine and a beer
We could have been Everclear, oh yeah, no no
And at your age, Buddy
You won't even have to bleach your hair
Sure, maybe it isn't fair

But give it up, son
You're just too old to die young
Nothing goes to 11
When you're this far from 21
Don't get me wrong, there was greatness
Getting wasted at the top of our lungs
But give it up, son
You're just too old to die young

Well, little boys and girls wanna be something
But big kids can't be everything
With all your subtraction and addiction
You're gonna end up without anything
Funny thing about being interesting
Is no one else thinks so but you
So what you say, stop reading the news?

Give it up, son
You're just too old to die young
Give it up, son
You're just too old to die young

Give it up, son
You're just too old to die young
Nothing goes to 11
When you're this far from 21
Don't get me wrong, there was greatness
Getting wasted at the top of our lungs
But give it up, son
You're just too old to die young
Give it up, son
You're just too old to die young
Give it up, son
You're just too old to die young
Give it up, son
You're just too old to die young
Give it up, son
You're just too old to die young
