I was walking by a neighbor's house the other day, and heard old ACDC blasting it, LOUD... it was just a little odd that the guy who lives there is in his mid 70's, ha ha. Still rockin', but probably loud because of his hearing aids.
I was listening to Black Sabbath someone was playing outside and I saw an older gentleman nodding his head to the music. I thought “That’s interesting, an older person enjoying Black Sabbath” When I got home I looked in the mirror and “Damn, I look way older than that guy!” I don’t pretend I’m young when I’m listening to old rock, but I guess I just think about younger times, and when some older people told me that rock and heavy metal was bad :)

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
I've never seem to get a lot
Take a jumbo across the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I'm hopin', it's going to come true
But there's not a lot, I can do

Could we have kippers for breakfast
Mummy dear, Mummy dear
They got to have 'em in Texas
'Cos everyone's a millionaire

- Supertramp

You saw a woman in a cafe, lips of crimson, yellow grin
Her shoes were wrong and she looked extremely thin
Her jewels were faked, she'd had a rinse, her hair was greyish blue
She looked ashamed when she explained to you
It ain't easy when there's no-one to lean on
It ain't easy when there's nobody there
It ain't easy when your lovers are all gone
Nobody there, nobody cares
The pubs were closed she'd got nowhere to go when she'd spilled her tea
Have you never thought "One day that could be me"?
Her temper changed, she looked so deranged, her perfume turned to gin
You looked at her and she began to sing

- The Specials
