Happy with no teeth happy here in hibernation
Slurpin' on a peach starin' at the situation
Kitty at my foot meowin' out a conversation
Rockin' back 'n' forth that's my only destination
Old man on the back porch old man on the back porch
Old man on the back porch and that old man is me
Old man on the back porch old man on the back porch
Old man on the back porch and that

Meeeeeeeee ow wow wow wow

Got a two string on my lap total subsonic vacation
Got chicken on the drums poundin' out a perfect prescription
Got twenty little worms all plug into amplification
Got fifteen hundred bass drum luggin' bug eyed monkeys
All arriving at the station

Old man on the back porch old man on the back porch
Old man on the back porch and that old man is me
Old man on the back porch old man on the back porch
Old man on the back porch and that

Me me meeeee ow whoa whoa whoa

Chris and dave's part sung at the same time improvised

Chris
I'm sittin' on the back porch kickin' my legs back rockin in my rockin'chair just sittin' there
On the little back porch it's about to fall apart
So I think I might repair it just as I'm thinkin about repairin' it
Some little friends come along with some two string one string
No string guitars hey chris wanna jam and they plug
Them all into the back porch and they sit around playing all their favorite songs
And kickin back feelin' real good real fine real full of the wine
And everything's fine everything's beautiful everything's great
And I just feel so good you know I'm seventy years old and
I'm slurpin' everything through a straw

Dave
I'm sittin' here on the back porch just eatin' chocolate pudding through a straw
And I heated it up on a little sterno stove tastes just like a warm body fluid goin' down little players comin' 'round pluggin' in their instruments feelin' good about themselves singin' origina
Gs by the original masters
And I'm sittin' there on the porch rockin' back 'n' forth in my little old chair

But I'm an old man on the back porch old man on the back porch
Old man on the back porch and that old man is me
Old man on the back porch old man on the back porch
Old man on the back porch and that
