lyrics

(CHORUS)
I’m old enough to be your mother
I sure would like to be your lover
But I have got to face reality
When I’m fifty nine
You’ll be in your prime
And you’ll be leaving me for your own kind.


We like the same bands
And we like the same cult films
And when we go out dancin’
We even like to take the same pills

You take my hand and flatter me
You make me feel so young
A love to last is what I need
But you just want to have fun


(CHORUS)
I’m old enough to be your mother
I sure would like to be your lover
But I have got to face reality
When I’m fifty nine
You’ll be in your prime
And you’ll be leaving me for your own kind.


I was watching my papa die
When you was learning how to drive
And love cannot abridge
What time divides.

So lets stop this foolish dreamin’
In such innocence begun
If I’m old enough to be your mother
Then you’re young enough to be my son!

(BREAK)

(CHORUS)
I’m old enough to be your mother
I sure would like to be your lover
But I have got to face reality
When I’m fifty nine
You’ll be in your prime
And you’ll be leaving me for your own kind.
