Lyrics

Now they make new movies In old black and white With happy endings Where nobody fights So if you find yourself In that nostalgic rage Honey, jump right up And show your age I wish I had a pencil thin mustache The Boston Blackie kind A two toned Ricky Ricardo jacket And an autographed picture of Andy Devine I remember being Buck-toothed and skinny Writing fan letters To Sky's niece, Penny Oh, I wish I had a pencil thin mustache Then I could solve some mysteries too

Then it's Bandstand Disneyland, growing up fast Drinking on a fake I.D. Yeah, and Rama of the jungle Was everyone's Bwana But only jazz musicians Were smoking marijuana Yeah, I wish I had a pencil thin mustache Then I could solve some mysteries too Then it's flat top Dirty bop, copping a feel Grubbing on the living room floor So sore Yeah, they send you off to college Try to gain a little knowledge But all you want to do Is learn how to score Yeah, but now I'm getting old Don't wear underwear I don't go to church And I don't cut my hair But I can go to movies And see it all there Just the way that it used to be That's why I wish I had a pencil thin mustache The Boston Blackie kind A two-toned Ricky Ricardo jacket And an autographed picture of Andy Devine Oh, I could be anyone I wanted to be Maybe suave Errol Flynn or the Sheik of Araby If I only had a pencil thin mustache Then I could do some cruising too Yeah, Bryl Cream A little dab'll do ya Oh, I could do some cruising too
