Track Name: Old Dogs...
Old dogs learn new tricks all the time
Just like old bandits often call it quits on their life of crime
I once knew a man who reconciled with his daughters at the age of eighty-one
And a junky who quit shootin' junk when we all thought his day was done
So like the team that picks it up when the clock's running out and scores and wins
Or the jilted lover who arrives at the chapel and wins her heart back just as her vows begin
Don't give up on me
Don't give up on me
I ain't dead yet.

Sure early bird gets the worm
But that don't make it too late for night owls to learn
What about that lady-painter didn't make a name for herself until she was like ninety-two
Or the baby who grows up to be something great even though he was born black and blue
Or the team that picks it up when the clock's running out and scores and wins
Or the jilted lover who arrives at the chapel and wins her heart back just as her vows begin
Don't give up on me
Don't give up on me
I ain't dead yet.

Who dictates this thing called time?
And who decides who resides in their prime?
Well every late-bloomer blooms sooner or later blooms just as soon as they can
And he who peaks early can peak surely can peak over and over again
So like the team that picks it up when the clock's running out and scores and wins
Or the jilted lover who arrives at the chapel and wins her heart back just as her vows begin
Don't give up on me
Don't give up on me
I ain't dead yet.

Don't give up on me
Don't give up on me
I ain't dead yet.

Don't give up on me
Don't give up on me
I ain't dead yet.
I ain't dead yet.
I ain't dead yet...
