Lyrics

It?s Great To Be Forty!
Written by Bill Rost/Mark Holbrook/Zan Summers

It?s great to be forty
When you?re livin? the high life
Got a thirty-year mortgage
And a forty-something wife

Don?t wanna be thirty
Knew too little then
Sure don?t wanna be twenty
And know everything again

Chorus
It?s great to be forty
Took me all my life
In this roller-coaster world
I?m at the top of the ride
Oh, it?s so great to be forty

Over the hill, hardly
Traded in the minivan
For a brand new Harley
My wife says she understands

Writing big tuition checks
Wearing damn reading specs
Workin? out in front of the telly
?Cause I gotta do somethin? ?bout this big beer belly

Chorus

So, bring on those fifties
Hit the fairways every day
Cashin? in on senior discounts
Cashin? out my IRA

Bridge
But I?ll be losing all my hair
Won?t be a millionaire
Join AARP
And get that colonoscopy

Chorus 2x
