The Lyrics

I like the Beastie Boys. This song is about how some people seem to think they are too old, even though theyre not. Its not serious, its like a satirical parody of myself in an ironic way. So if you think the Beastie Boys are old you should like this song...even though its totally not true. yeah, im just kidding with this song.
What's the time It's time to give up
And what's the time It's time to give up
So what's the time It's time to give up
Now what's the time It's time to give up

We're the Beastie Boys and we're running out of time
I think Mike D just turned 85
Now we shop at sales, we cant open our mail
Take my pills every morning and my home is my jail
Cans we are collecting, grandchildren we're expecting
Adrock Mike D and MCA, the 80s we're resenting
running out of time and out of chump
What's that time? It's time to give up!

I've got...
Artiritis in my hands and wrinkles in my face
Lost my glasses and theyre not in their case
I stumble around looking for the rest of the band
Had to get the boy scouts to lend me a hand
Drivin' 10 miles per hour in my rusted out car
But I keep getting lost so I dont drive far
Gotta sit down to take a little nap
What's the time here? Time to give up!

Buy quality meats from the quality deli
But I eat through a straw so I must eat jelly
Got a busted hip, always got the flu
We lost our edge when we lost out youth
Got a big easy chair from the easy chair man
It takes me 10 minutes to sit or to stand
Man my name is MCA and you are in luck
Because now we know, its time to give up!

Brown is my color and the Beasties are my band
Old man kung fu with a cane in each hand
Lookin for hitler shows on my tee vee
'Cause me and MCA think we lost Mike D
Scones with jam, I always say 'damn'
Known to tip my hat and say thank you ma'am
I got lots of antiques and smelly things
And I know the history of England's kings

Sell medication to get by, it gets the kids high
Here to stay 'till we eventually die
Im scared of bees, its a freaky sight to see
If you want a skeleton then take Mike D.
Scrabble's what I play cause I dont go to work
The kids of today are slackers and jerks
We dont body move and we dont shake rump
Want to know why? cause we gave up!

And what's the time It's time to give up
So what's the time It's time to give up
And what's the time It's time to give up
