Lyrics:

I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did

It seems like the day before yesterday I was just a little snotty-nosed kid

And that shock of hair that I had back there went away and hid, yeah it did

But, I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did

 

Well, I’d have thought for sure Jesus would have come back by now

I still believe some day I’ll see Him riding that big white horse through the clouds

I believe it even more right now than I did when I was a kid

Still, I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did

 

(They thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did)

And I hope I have a few more years before they close that lid

Ah, come on, Larry, we’ve had more fun already than I’d really like to admit

Still, I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer

(He thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer)

Still, I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did

Oh, come on, Kevin, show us your stuff

 

I’d have thought by now I’d have more money than I do, like you

Oh, but God knows best, we’ve all been blessed (with more than enough to see us through)

And I wouldn’t trade places with anyone else, heaven and God forbid

Still, I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did

 

Now, this simple song is just two minutes long

Come on, Larry, who we trying to kid

But it sure seems like it took a lot longer than it did (thank the Lord)
