They take her out at night
a handle with a sight
and if he's not safe
a brand new mantle place

Take it easy little boy
Or you'll never feel the joy
Of another sunrise

Rather die old than tired (4x)

I pick her up at eight
A grip thats shifts the weight
And a warning that I had best not step the line

Take it easy old man
I just want to hold her hand
But its just best to play it safe...

Rather die old than tired (4x)

What if I could be the one?

So I will reminisce a handshake for a kiss
I don't care if they see
A small damn victory
Rather die old than tired
Rather die old than tired

Rather die tired!

    General CommentThis song is basically about a guy dating a girl (or wanting to date her) but the girl's father is on his back.

    This is best summed up in the lines:
    "Take it easy old man, I just want to hold her hand."

    Great song! Excellent band! I highly recommend you download or buy.
