Lyrics
Said a old man to a good looking girl
“Well, I’ve been around this big wide world
Sat home on a hill but honey that’s mine
I’ve got the money and God loves the time”

I’m not too old to cut the mustard anymore
I can still get around like I did before
So come along my sweet, sweet hon'
I’m an old, old man just searching for fun

What I can do now, most young men can’t
There’s not a town that this boy can’t paint
I can make all the clubs just any old night
I may be a little older but I’m doing all right

Don’t take me wrong I just want to have fun
Have someone along to help spend my mon
'Cause you don’t live but once so please understand
That I’m an old, old man trying to live while I can

I got money to spend, a new car to drive
And I won’t give in, we’ll have fun, man alive
And we’ll honky-tonk all the night long
I’m just an old man that don’t want to go home
