Yoko Ono – Life Begins At 40 lyrics

- wed like to welcome you here to the dakota country and western club
And in return for miss yoko onos wonderful gift of a very strange...
Id like, this morning, to sing you a little ditty that occured to me in the throes of my sleep
Its called life begins at 40

They say life begins at forty,
Age is just a state of mind.
If all that's true,
You know, that I've been dead for thirty-nine.

And if life begins at forty,
Well, I hope it aint the same
Its been tough enough without that stuff
I don't wanna to be born again.

Well, I tried to sweep the slate clean
With a new broom evry day
If that don't work,
Ill jerk around until my next birtday

Yeah, life begins at forty,
Age is just a state of mind.
Well, if all that's true
You know that I've been dead for thirty-nine.
