They let you dream just to watch 'em shatter
You're just a step on the boss-man's ladder

Don't look up, don't look down
You don't dare make the boss-man frown

Me and George finish the Jack
After drinkin'
like a coward 
You'll end up yelling out loud

Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'

You watch 'em work, these stupid jerks

You may never get another chance
'Cause youth a mask but it don't last
Live it long and live it fast"
Georgie was a friend of mine

Da da da

You may never get another chance
'Cause youth a mask but it don't last
Live it long and live it fast"

No, man, but I sure would like to visit down there.

You would?
Well, I'll tell you what then, let us
So don't be ashamed of your age
Mr. George Jones, don't be ashamed of your age

Now listen here to me, Jerry Lee
Don't let your age get you down
While
it away
It's just another day in this old town
So get down

Home shopping channel's got us by the eyes
Scrambling to the phones ordering porcelain
