Lyrics

He's out there somewhere every night The music's playin' loud He's doing all-a those fifty's steps He's in a 1980 crowd Dim lights hide the milage line Clairol hides the gray And he won't mention anything To give his old age away Oh Lord, he's thirty-nine an he's holdin' He's holdin' everything that he can From seventeen to twenty-five He'll prove he's still a man

Hey boy, you're holding to a candle And it's a-burning at both ends Thirty-nine and holding A-holdin' everything that I can Well, now you can bet he'll never see Thirty-nine, again Son, you oughta given up a long time ago But you just keep on hangin' in He still thinks that he's the man That he once used to be Boy, you're just thirty-nine And you're dreamin' Acting twenty-three Oh-oh, he's thirty-nine, he's holdin' Holdin' everything that he can From seventeen to twenty-five He'll prove he's still a man He's a-holding to a candle My God, it's burning at both ends! He's thirty-nine and he's holdin' Holdin' everything he can He's thirty-nine and he's dreamin'
