The old Rocker wore his hair too long,
Unfashionable to the end --- drank his ale too light.
The transport caf' prophet of doom.
In his post-war-babe gloom.
Now he's too old to Rock'n'Roll but he's too young to die.
He once owned a Harley Davidson and a Triumph Bonneville.
And prays that he always will.
All of his mates are doing time:
Sold their souls straight down the line.
And meet at the tennis club do's.
They've thrown away their blue suede shoes.
Now they're too old to Rock'n'Roll and they're too young to die.
So the old Rocker gets out his bike
Up on the A1 by Scotch Corner
And as he flies --- tears in his eyes ---
And he hits the trunk road doing around 120

No, you're never too old to Rock'n'Roll if you're too young to die.
