Old Is The New Young

Picture my father at the age I am now
We could be brothers, but he’s older somehow
I’m still a student deciding what my life is
I listen to the latest music and podcasts
He already had house, wife, and kids
His clothes and his records were made to last
Today on the bus to school I saw the flair
Of grandpa in leather pants and coat
His student card showed white with hair
Of his aged virility he seemed to gloat
Dior bag over his shoulder slung
Hemp leaf on his hat right bold
Proving that old is the new young
And young is the new old
