"The Age When They Carry Us"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

When we're fresh and new, here in the house
Our dinner comes in tiny jars
We're gettin' by like bandits,
We own the moon and stars...

This is the dawning of the age
When they carry us, the age when they carry us
Carry us, carry us..

Tiny booties, pink and rounding,
Cuddling and love abounding
Need thoughts, naught - nor make decisions
Worry free - without ambitions
Mom and Pop control our station
One true time of liberation
They carry us, carry us

Then soon we're adults, and leave the house
Two jobs,, two kids, two brand new cars
Comes divorce - foreclose - jobs canned us
Move back home - hang in bars..

Now comes the dawning - of new age when they carry us
New age when they carry us,
They carry us, unmarried us...

Let the son dine, let the son dine in
The son dine in
Let the son dine, let the son dine in
The son dine in...
Let the son dine, let the son dine in
The son dine in....

Those in the original cast of Hair (c. 1968) are at ages when Medicare and Social Security carry them, and so will pall-bearers in the next two decades Just a morbid thought for another parody...
