Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop

Don't let me hear you say life's taking you nowhere, angel 
Come get up my baby
Look at that sky, life's begun  Nights are warm and the days are young 
Come get up my baby

There's my baby, lost that's all
Once I'm begging you save her little soul
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up my baby

Last night they loved you, opening doors and pulling some strings, angel 
Come get up my baby
In walked luck and you looked in time
 Never look back, walk tall, act fine
Come get up my baby

I'll stick with you baby for a thousand years
Nothing's gonna touch you in these golden years, gold
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up my baby

Some of these days, and it won't be long
 Gonna drive back down where you once belonged 
In the back of a dream car twenty foot long
Don't cry my sweet, don't break my heart  Doing all right, but you gotta get smart 
Wish upon, wish upon, day upon day, I believe oh Lord
I believe all the way
Come get up my baby

Run for the shadows, run for the shadows 
Run for the shadows in these golden years 

There's my baby, lost that's all
Once I'm begging you save her little soul
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up my baby

Don't let me hear you say life's taking you nowhere, angel 
Come get up my baby
Run for the shadows, run for the shadows 
Run for the shadows in these golden years 

I'll stick with you baby for a thousand years
Nothing's gonna touch you in these golden years, gold

 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
 Golden years, gold whop whop whop
