Gold In Timbuktu

歌詞

When I am old and lonely

Would you still be there for me

Cause now I have all of my strength

And you have all your beauty

When you're gold in Timbuktu

Will I still come look for you

Let's swim in the deep end

Make it warm that we can

For you for me

 

Buried in the deep end

Life is one big weekend

 

Youth

One day you have it and then

Poof

It's gone with the wind

It's a kin to the end

And no matter how you fight it

How you light it how you write it

Time is the pen out of ink

 

Poof and I'm a living proof

I used to have it all young and uncoof

 

These days I hear on everything on delay

Cause I wear an air piece just to hear what he say

 

When my son visit I don't know why I get livid

Maybe I'm jealous of his age

My memories vivid I was just like him

Young like him

Had a mouth on me a tongue like him

But now I'm feeling much weaker

Closest thing to my heart is a mandatory gripper

 

And my eyes ain't what they used to be either

But here's me singing promise from la Vita

When I am old and lonely

Would you still be there for me

Cause now I have all of my strength

And you have all your beauty

When you're gold in Timbuktu

Will I still come look for you

Let's swim in the deep end

Make it warm that we can

For you for me

 

Buried in the deep end

Life is one big weekend

 

Push

One day you coming and then

 

Woosh

You'd be surprised how easy is

To be enticed and feasting life

Without the least of dreams suffice

So watch it fly fear to flight

So I'm busy chasing a decent size

Tush and I ain't never been a wuss

Have more arms than an octopus

Those days I never thought of old age

I never thought I'd see the hair in my nose gray

But life goes on how ironic

If I could do it over I'd probably smoke chronic

But still follow the footsteps of prophet Mohammed

I probably turn every lie that I told honest

I be an equal terrorist I give the middle finger to my therapist

And flush my sedatest

I'll have a baby with a feminist and name him sexist

 

Life's a contradiction on my check list

When I am old and lonely

Would you still be there for me

 

Cause now I have all of my strength

And you have all your beauty

 

When you're gold in Timbuktu

Will I still come look for you

 

Let's swim in the deep end

Make it warm that we can

For you for me

 

Buried in the deep end

Life is one big weekend
