i want to be old lyrics – cure

i want to be old
and creek by the fire
i want to smell of rotting wood
it’s all i desire

i want my joints to seize up
i want my legs to ache
i want my eyesight to fail
i want my skin to flake

to be old
i want to be old
i want to be old
i want to be old

i want false teeth
and not be able to chew
i want to be senile
a centenarian fool

i want to have lots of wrinkles
want my hearing to go
i want to be ignored
and i want to be slow

to be old
i want to be old
i want to be old
i want to be old

i want to be old
i want to be old
i want to be old
i want to be old
