Thread Name: Songs about getting older?
Subject: RE: Songs about getting older?
The other day I saw a young man of about 25 singing a self-penned story about how he wished he were still young. 'Hardly out of short trousers' was my comment. Then I was told that nowadays they don't do that short trousers into long trousers thing any more.

Menopausal men with expensive guitars. Owch! Too near the knuckle to attempt in public. Nicely observed. Ear-ring in one ear as another detail?

What about

They think they look sexy with the new guitar
But a mere phallic symbol won't get them far.
When it comes down to it, their ding-a-ling
Is in deep need of a set of new strings.

Love the Hesitation Blues!
