                [Intro]
G#m7    A     B      E

E
I rounded first never thought of the worst
     B
As I studied the shortstop's position
B7
Crack went my leg like the shell of an egg      
        E
Someone call a decent physician
A                G#m7       A
I'm no Pete Rose,I can't pretend
                       E                B7                  E
Though my mind is quite flexible, these brittle bones don't bend

[Chorus]
           E
I'm growing older but not up
             B7
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
           G#m7              A
Let those winds of time blow over my head
           B                              B7     E    B7
I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm   dead

E
Sometimes I see me as an old manatee
        B
Headin' south as the waters grow colder
B7
Tries to steer clear of the hum-drum so near
        E
It cuts prop scars deep in his shoulder
    A                                        G#m7          A
But that's how it goes (that's how it goes), right to the end 
                        E               B7                  E
Though his body's quite flexible, that barnacle brain don't bend

            E
I'm growing older but not up
             B7
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
          G#m7                A           
Let those winds of time blow over my head   
           B                              B7     E   B7
I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead

[Solo]

Now (E) don't get me wrong
This is not a sad song
Just ev(B)ents that I have happened to witness
And (B7) time takes its toll as we head for the poll
And no (E) one dies from physical fitness
So (A) what the hell, we'll take it (G#m7) right to the (A) end
As the days grow more (E) complicated the (B7) nightlife still (E) wins

I'm growing (E) older but not up
My metabolic (B7) rate is pleasantly stuck           
Let those (G#m7) winds of change blow (A) over my head         
I'd rather (B) die while I'm living than live (B7) while (E) I'm (B7) dead
Let those (G#m7) winds of time blow (A) over my head  
I'd rather (B) die while I'm living than (A) li(G#m)ve (F#m) while (E) (B7) I'm (E) dead
