my lyricsbox

I stayed home with my babes
All during their growing years
I ran my business on the phone
And was there to dry their tears
So that when they each would leave the nest
I could rest assured I'd given them my best
And now.. my wings have come unfurled
Have things I must inform the world
But those who hold the key
They keep on tellin' me
"Honey.. you're too old"

I've got the too old blues
Been hearing it far too long
It makes no sense.. so it's time to scold
When I have so much to give
Why does it matter how long I've lived
I look.. and think...and act.. young
Write unique songs that must be sung
I'm not useless...I'm strong and bold
So stop giving me those 'too old' blues

Worked so hard...saved some cash
Supported my loved ones dreams
Found energy to work on mine
And surprising as it seems
True friends took notice of my goals
Kept saying "Hey girl.. You owe this to yourself
Pursue that dream while there's still time"
Found the door and paid my dime
But those who hold the key
They keep on tellin' me
"Honey, you're too old"


(Tag... repeat to fade)
I'll always stay young
Have songs to be sung
I'll never quit... I refuse
So stop giving me those 'too old' blues
