Oldest Swinger In Town

  • (Chris Newman / Ed Pickford)

    When you score with a chick in a disco bar
    Take her home in your hairy little car
    Then you find you went to school with her Ma and Pa
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    When you won't look in a mirror in the light of day
    Swear you dyed it when your hair turns grey
    When you zip up your Wranglers and your belly's in the way
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    Here you come and there you go
    Wire wheel-spokes and a stereo
    But the engine's clapped, and the driver also
    Is the oldest swinger in town

    When your barber takes a little less time each week
    The kids don't understand a word you speak
    When you walk into a disco and they offer you a seat
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    You prefer a pint of mild to Bacardi and coke
    The songs are too loud and there's too much smoke
    You'd like another dance but you're scared you'll have a stroke
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    Here you come with your chest all bare
    A little gold ingot and a lot of gold hair
    Like the disco king meets Yogi Bear
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    When you're feeling as stiff as a skinhead's boot
    Rub on Vick where you used to splash Brut
    And the latest punk fashion is your wedding suit
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    When you have to go shopping for your sex appeal
    Travolta shades and nine-inch heels
    You say a man is just as old as the woman he feels
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    Here you come with your lips closed tight
    You never smile, you know it wouldn't look right
    'Cause your dentures glow in ultra-violet light
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    And you look so mean 'cause your pants are too tight
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    And it takes you all night to do what you used to do all night
    You're the oldest swinger in town

    (as sung by Fred Wedlock)
