Old age and treachery always overcomes youth and skill
Ain't too much that we won't do what Waylon won't Willie will
Even though we've spent our lives charging up the wrong side of the hill
Old age and treachery always overcomes youth and skill
Some people say that our get up and go's got up and gone
I don't know bout you Willie
But I can still jump as high I just can't stay that high that long
Even though we've spent our lives charging up the wrong side of the hill
Old age and treachery always overcomes youth and skill
Young bull says old bull let's run that heiffer down and have a ball
Let's make her squawl
Old bull says young bull let's just ease on adown and love 'em all
Old age and treachery always overcomes...
Rosie loves the raquet ball she won't do it but her sister will
Damn what'd you say that for
Ain't got a thing to do with this I know what you're tryin' to do
Your tryin' to get half a song
OK we'll put your name on it
