In my time Iíve been a few places and Iíve many a story to tell.
Here I am still as strong as Iíve been all along,
Iím not ready for heaven or hell.
There are people who do need remindiní
That Iím still the boss around here.
I still call every shot and Iíll tell you whatís what
And whatís not, do I make myself clear.
Iím not ready to roll over
Iím still the daddy of them all,
Iím still the top banana
They still answer when I call.
Iím older, yes but Iím wiser
And theyíd better not forget
Iím not ready to roll over,
Cause thereís life in the old dog yet. (Final 2x)
You can put an old head on young shoulders
My advice is the best I can give
Let them make their mistakes let them fight for their breaks
Let them learn how to love and to live.
Iíve only got the one daughter, time she married a man of her own
And the one I have planned has got plenty of land,
Sheíll be grand and Iíll stand all alone.
