I wish I was 18 again
sung by Mr. George Burns

 at a bar down in Dallas 
an old man chimed in,
and I thought he was out 
of his his head. 
just being a young man 
I just laughed it off 
when I heard what 
that old man had said. 

he said I'll never again 
turn the young ladies heads, 
or go running off into the wind.
I'm three quarters home 
from the start to the end. 
and I wish I was 18 again.

I wish I was 18 again.
and going where I've never been.
but old folks and old oaks
standing tall just pretend.
I wish I was 18 again.

now time turns the pages 
and oh, life goes so fast.
the years turn 
the black hair all grey.
I talked to some young folks, 
hey they don't understand 
the words this 
old man's got to say.

I wish I was 18 again.
and going where 
I've never been.
but old folks and old oaks 
standing tall just pretend.
I wish I was 18 again.

lord, I wish I was 18 again!
