Lyrics

GRUMPY OLD MAN
Music and lyrics by,
Mick Keogh
01/Sept/2006


Paid a recent visit to the fast food restaraunt.
Fast food ain't the word for it the goddam que's too long.
Feel I've aged a year or two by the time I get my sandwich.
I've got boxes and bags and cups and straws from a guy who don't speak my language.

And I'm searching through this garbage,
tryin' to find my snappy meal.
Now all my money's in the till,
and I still ain't had my fill,
Is it any wonder how I feel the way I feel.

They told me that my CDs would outlive eternity.
But the CD player's bust again it won't play my tunes for me.
And I can't get my head around all your ipods and MP3s
So I'm dusting off my records, Gonna spin my 33s.

And I'm searching through the stations,
tryin' to find some rock and roll.
Y'see my soul was Stevie Wonder, my jazz was Nat King Cole.
Is it any wonder that I feel so goddam old...

I'm just a grumpy old man
I'm just a grumpy old man
It's the only way of describin'
Why I am the way I am.
I'm just a grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy old man.

Tryin' to place the day, when I turned into this grouse.
Kids cleaning out my bank account, and messin' up my house
But I'm too old for regrettin', the decisions of my past
And my life is getting short now, so I gotta find out fast.

So I'm searchin' down through history,
Tryin' to find a reason why.
Y'see back in the dark ages, Id be dead by thirty five.
So even though I've lived too long I'm glad that I've survived
to be a.....

grumpy old man
I'm just a grumpy old man
It's the only way of describin'
Why I am the way I am.
I'm just a grumpy grumpy grumpy old man.

Don't ask me 'bout my politics I'll say it's all a sham,
Direct your questions to my fist 'cos my face don't give a damn.
My Momma said "say nothin', if you've nothin' nice to say".
So I guess I'll just shut up now, up until my dyin' day

I'm a grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy,
grumpy old man.
I'm a grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy,
grumpy old man yes I am.
I'm a grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy,

grumpy old man.

I'm just a grumpy old man.
