Oldest Man Alive

By Stan White & Lou Porzilli

1999

 

Billy:

Iím the oldest man alive. Yeah.

Thought Iíd done it all before.

You wonít believe what Iíve seen.

Iím the oldest man alive

They said we had to change our ways.

I took them seriously.

I canít stay out here any more.

I want to see sweet Mother Earth.

Iím goiní home. Iím going home again.

Iím crossing all these miles.

All those light years that have passed me by

Hopiní itís better this time.

Iím the oldest man alive

Could be better, could be worse.

Iím the oldest man

But Iím coming home.

Iím coming home again.

Iím coming home again.

 

I am the oldest man in the world

And of course I donít look my age.

Thereís no one whoís been around so long

Youíll never understand my rage.

 

I left the Earth in í93

Not that year, ten centuries before.

Now Iím back once more and itís clearly worse.

I was really hoping for so much more.

Crowd:

Heís the oldest man alive

And he still looks twenty-five

Heís the oldest man alive

Does he still have the will to survive?

 

Friends from the past come to my mind.

Their faces, still haunting me now.

There was no one like you, in all my past.

I should have stayed, but I didnít know how.

 

 

 

 

Time is sliding away from me

As I travel from star to star.

Iíve been a hero, a rogue and at last

Seems I never should have traveled so far.

Crowd:

Heís the oldest man alive

And he still looks twenty-five

Heís the oldest man alive

Does he still have the will to survive?

Billy:

Look at me. Iím Billy. Try to feel something for me.

Cause I canít feel anything.

No I wonít feel anything

I donít want to feel anything

For the people that I need.

I canít help what I need.

Crowd:

Heís the oldest man alive

And he still looks twenty-five

Heís the oldest man alive

Does he still have the will to survive?

Heís the oldest man alive

Heís the oldest man alive

Heís the oldest man alive

Heís the oldest man alive

Heís the oldest man alive

Billy:

Iím the oldest man alive

Iím the oldest man alive

Iím the oldest man

Iím the oldest man

Could I be Saint Germaine or

Is it just my cryogenic brain, oh.

Iím the oldest man

Iím the oldest man

Older than your blackest fryiní pan

Iím older than Charlie Chan

Iím the oldest man

Iím the oldest man

You know Iím older than Al Capone.

Iím even older than the Rolliní Stones

Iím the oldest man

Iím the oldest man
