You may think I'm silly
To love a man twice my age
But I know from experience, girls
Sometime it pays

The man I've got
The fire's almost gone
He can't heat up nobody's house
He's got just enough to keep me warm

I'd rather be an old man's sweetheart
Than to be a young man's fool
Oh, yeah

To love you once a month
Is all an old man desires
You can love a young man
Seven days a week
And still he's not satisfied

And old man would be so grateful
You could just sit and talk
But a young man is somewhere
Doing the camel walk

I'd rather be an old man's sweetheart
Than to be a young man's fool
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Most girls prefer a young man
'Cause a young man is strong
But I'd rather put up with this old man
Than have a young man doing me wrong

And old man would be so grateful
You could just let him sit and talk
But a young man is somewhere busy
Doing the camel walk

I'd rather be an old man's sweetheart
Than to be a young man's fool

Don't wanna be your fool, no
Don't wanna be your fool
Ain't gonna be your fool
Don't wanna be no fool

Young man just ain't gonna do that
No, no, don't wanna be no fool
Ain't gonna be no fool
Ain't gonna be no fool, no, no, no
Ain't gonna be no fool, no
