(Shoop... Shoop)
And when he wakes up in the morning
It takes him time to adjust
So sick and tired of the money
(Shoop, he's at that dangerous age)
And all the life that is lost
(Shoop, he's at that dangerous age)

If you could only get it back
How high the whirl
Could start to stack
And every chance you gets to fly he goes far
In his car

He likes 2 sugars in his coffee
(Shoop, he's at that dangerous age)
He wants a chick in the office
(Shoop, he's at that dangerous age)
He's touching straight up bay
(Shoop, he's at that dangerous age)
He's on a much higher rage
(Shoop, he's at that dangerous age)

And he will seconds of a frame
He starts to see
And takes the blame
And any chance he gets to run he goes far
In his car, very far

She wears her skirt so much higher...

She has the heir for high flyer
(Shoop, she's at that dangerous age)
She gets down on the student range
(Shoop, she's at that dangerous age)
And all her friends think she's trying
(Shoop, she's at that dangerous age)
She's at that dangerous age
(Shoop, they're at that dangerous age)
She's at that dangerous age
(Shoop, they're at that dangerous age)

(Shoop, she's at that dangerous age)
(Shoop, she's at that dangerous age)

And when he wakes up in the morning
It takes him time to adjust
He's so sick of the money
And all the life that is lost

    The corrections are an improvement but ...
    She gets out on the student range
    Should be ...
    She gets out on the shooting range

    The lyrics are wrong...

    And when he wakes up in the morning
    It takes him time to adjust
    So sick and tired of the money
    And all the life that he's lost

    If he could only get it back
    How high the world
    Could start to stack
    And every chance he gets to fly he goes far... In his car

    He likes three sugars in his coffee
    He wants that chick in the office
    He's took to staying up late
    He's on a much higher rate

    And in the seconds of a frame
    He starts to see
    And takes the blame
    And any chance he gets to run
    He goes far.. In his car... Driving far

    She wears her skirt so much higher
    She has the air of a high flyer
    She gets out on the the student range
    And all her friends think she's changed

    And when he wakes up in the morning
    It takes him time to adjust
    He's so sick of the money
    And all the life that he's lost

    The song is about someone middle aged pretty obvious it's a tongue in cheek look at himself.

    I know exactly what paul is singing about here. A jam day music friend, a very good guy, no nonsense what you see is what you get... A few months older than me at 53... A dangerous age!
