Lyrics

Well, I've been singing most my lifetime
Of Rockall, Strong Men and Botany Bay
Singing songs of love and hope and freedom
While time have slowly slipped away

Have you noticed the policemen getting younger
And the busmen they're getting younger too
While all my friends are getting older
I have stayed the same, you know it's true

And Janie Mac I'm nearly forty
I think my hair is turning grey
I'll be on the pension very shortly
And how I long for yesterday

We're so long together it's a record
We should be in the Guinness Book of Fame
For twenty five long years we've been together
And just for spite we'll do the same again

But there's silver threads in Tom's whiskers
And Derek with the beard he's getting bald
While though he's getting kind of grumpy
While I, I'm not just getting old

And Janie Mac I'm nearly forty
I think my hair is turning grey
I'll be on the pension very shortly
And how I long for yesterday

So all you knockers and begrudgers
You will admit we have that touch of class
If not, we'll send you our new record
And you can stick it up your ...

And Janie Mac I'm nearly forty
I think my hair is turning grey
I'll be on the pension very shortly
And how I long for yesterday
