They say life begins at forty
Age is just a state of mind
If all that's true
You know that I've been dead for thirty-nine

I don't wanna to be born again

Well, I tried to sweep the slate clean
With a new broom every day
If that don't work
I'll jerk around until my next birthday

Yeah, life begins at forty
Age is just a state of mind
Well, if all that's true
You know that I've been dead for thirty-nine
