Subject: 'Oldest swinger in town' lyric update ?

I am playing at a 70th birthday bash tomorrow evening and have been asked to sing "The oldest swinger in town " as a humorous tribute to the main guest.

the problem is that there will be a lot of younger guests there who will never have heard the song, and the line "Travolta's shades and nine inch heels" will mean absolutely nothing to them, so I would like to alter it to something which would have some current relevance.

all creative suggestions welcomed, pursed lips regarding the ethics of changing lyrics not quite as welcome.

Heck ... there's nothing wrong with changing the lyrics ... I do it all the time. Sometimes I even do it on purpose! Bob(deckman)Nelson

thanks richie, I see that Ed Pickford updates the lyrics periodically, and in fact invites others to do the same.

I'm still not happy with the "nine inch heels" thing, I don't think the youngsters will remember platform soles.

"boy racers wheels" is good but doesn't quite fit the "disco" context.

"disco", ffs, will the kids even know what that is ???????????
