The Lyrics

(a young Liesl)
You wait old man
On an empty stage
For fate to turn the light off
Your life old man
Is an old carriage
That women will want to ride on
(an aging Rolf)
To ride on
(a young Liesl)
You are 50 going on 60
Baby it's time to think
Better beware
Be canny and careful
Baby you're on the brink
You are 50 going on 60
Women will fall in line
Scheming young maids
And lovely mermaids
Will offer you mood and wine
Totally unprepared are you
To face a world of slime
Stupid and shy and scared are you
Of things beyond your time
You need someone
Younger and nicer
Telling you what to do
I am 17 going on 18
I'll take care of you
(an aging Rolf)
I am 50 going on 60
I know that I'm naive
Women I meet may tell me I'm sweet
And willingly I believe
I am 50 going on 60 ancient as pharoahs
Bachelor parties
Drug-laced candies
What do I remember of those?
Totally unprepared am I
To face a world of slime
Stupid and shy and scared am I
Of things beyond my time
I need someone
Younger and nicer
Telling me what to do
You are 17 going on 18
I'll depend on you
