It ain’t as fun as in the past
Light that fireworks fuse
Then you better run real fast
These days I light ‘em up
I don't even hear the blast
It ain’t as fun as in the past

I used to smoke in surgery
Then every nurse I'd see,
I'd stop and make a pass
Now they put this suit on me,
They say they've been harassed
It ain’t as fun as in the past

I used to sit right here
Get drunk on beer
Right here on this beach
Then I'd stumble in to St Catherines
Do mass and preach
These days people stop and stare
With faces all aghast
It ain’t as fun as in the past

I loved Beccy back in school
Then we got married
And the first few weeks were cool
Now her and her hot-shot lawyer
Now they own my ass
It sure ain’t as fun as in the past

The other day I walked into a bar
Barman looked me up and down
And served me with a frown
I said take back this plastic cup
And put it in a glass
It ain’t as fun as in the past

Rules are fine some of the time
But tell me what's the deal
With that hard line against moonshine
Man, are you for real?
These kids are packed in bubble wrap
They should let me teach a class
It ain’t as fun as in the past

I've seen too many fun police
One thing I know
They won't be patrolling heaven's streets
I'll be there soon to meet Keith Moon
And I'll raise a glass
To having fun like in the past
Hope it's as fun as in the past
