I got a couple more years on you, babe,
and that's all,
I've had more chances to fly to more places to fall;
It ain't that I'm wiser,
it's only that I've spent more time
with my back to the wall,
And I picked up a couple more years on you, babe,
that's all.

I've walked a couple more roads than you, babe,
that's all,
I'm tired of runnin',
and you're only learning to crawl;
You've been to somewhere, I've been to somewhere,
I've found it was nowhere at all,
And I picked up a couple more years on you, babe,
that's all.

Saying goodbye, girl, don't ever come easy at all,
But you gotta fly 'cause
you're hearing them young eagles call;
Someday when you're older
you'll smile at a man strong and tall,
You'll say I got a couple more years on you, babe,
that's all.

I got a couple more years on you, babe, that's all,
I've had more chances to fly to more places to fall;
It ain't that I'm wiser,
it's only that I've spent more time
With my back to the wall,
And I picked up a couple more years on you, babe,
that's all.
Yes, I picked up a couple more years on you, babe,
that's all.
