Story Behind the Song

Tongue-in-cheek song about an older gentleman observing the effects of time on his body. He encourages his wife to drink more wine because it makes him look better. At the end he goes to the eye doctor and, after getting glasses, realizes that his wife has experienced the same effects of aging. All in fun.

Lyrics

Time is like a friend
who brings your car back with a dent
Tires and worn
Muffler's gone
The steering wheel is bent

And he ain't even sorry
about the damage that he left
He erased my youthful face
and left me with this wreck

But with age comes wisdom
and I've learned a thing or two
I found how to look my best
So honey, here's to you

I look better when you're drinking
Lord have mercy, I look fine
I look better when you're drinking
Darling, you got to drink more wine

Now I'm faced with gravity
and the things that he pulls down
My neck is like a turkey's
and my pecs are on the ground

You used to run your fingers
through my wavy locks of hair
baldness can't be in your genes
'cause I got hair down there

Chorus

My joints are getting creaky
how much longer can I last?
My nether parts are leaking
and my teeth are in a glass

I had to get my eyes checked out
'cause I could barely see
When I came out I had to shout
When I saw you looked like me

We look better when we're drinking
Lord have mercy, we look fine
We look better when we're drinking
Darling, we got to drink more wine

I look better when you're drinking
Lord have mercy, I look fine
I look better when you're drinking
Darling, you got to drink
Darling, don't even think
Darling, you got to drink more wine
