Twenty Years

Kenny Rogers – Twenty years ago

Twenty years ago I was twenty
And as clueless as can be…
My parents were both healthy
As they shook their heads at me.

Twenty years later I am forty
And my parents more of a mess
I still have lots to learn
My survival still a guess.

Twenty years from now I will be 60
And I wonder how that’s true
Life flies so fast
When staring back at you.

Twenty years ago was easy
Compared to twenty years from now
I know I will survive
Even if idiots make me wonder how.

Twenty years ago was Kenny
And today its Taylor Swift
May we all learn from the past…
So tomorrow is better than this.
