Too young too old FAWM

For the FAWM, the second of my songs.

Our youngest was only a couple of months old, and after the third child, many people suddenly had a strong believe or opinion about sexuality. My sexuality that is.
And I thought: This is almost like if I were 17 again! I am now twice that age (in 1985), how will it be when I am twice my age then?
And I wrote a rough version of this song. I am at this moment about twice the age I was in 1985. I secretly enjoyed digging up that song and make a new rendition of it.

My guess is, that it's the newly made oldest original on the famous Kitchen forum.

Too young too old

Ch
‘Cause we’re too young too old
To love to hold
Who will take us serious
When we get delirious
‘Cause we’re too young too old

Adds luring lyrics implying
Are we oversexed?
Double standards beery jokes
What they’ll think of next

Get physical get animal
We’re locked in this cage
When we do what nature tells us
They tell us to act our age

‘Cause we’re too young...

Br
We’re not married but at night
We get so alone
It’s a series of boring days
In our old folks home

‘Cause we’re too young...

Wmei 1985

It was one of the last songs I wrote in English. Soon after this one I decided to write in Dutch.
Which I did untill joining this forum in 2010.

Enjoy!
Kind regards, Gus


In 1985 I was led by ‘A teenagers romance’, by Ricky Nelson.
Some 60 yers later, we probably would say it this way. But in that year political correctness was yet to be invented I guess.

They tell us we're different
We haven't the right
To decide for ourselves, dear
What's black and what's white

Hola @LePlongeur

I really liked your lyrics and the song. I understand it perfectly and see the image you describe, we are locked in a cage that conditions us to this or that.
I think that being too young is wonderful because any madness has an excuse, I am not talking about hurting others ... So I hope you will always remain too young and I believe that it will be.

O yes you are right @Mora Amaro La Loba
I am 28 if I don’t shave.

No, honestly:
I personally think that growing old graciously is a very good idea.
And the love of my life is not for nothing the love of my life, so when we walk hand in hand we can perfectly do without the comment.

So, yes, unlike most other lyrics, this one is autobiographical.
Plus I liked the interval. 17 years, 35 and now 70. When I am 140 I’ll write another one.

Thank you for the listen and your post. You know that it means a lot to me.
Kind regards, Gus
