Life Begins At 40
John Lennon

"Weīd like to welcome you here to the Dakota Country And Western Club."
"And in return for Miss Yoko Onoīs wonderful gift of a very strange ..."
"Iīd like, this morning, to sing you a little ditty that occured to me in the throes of my sleep."
"Itīs called īLife Begins At 40ī."

They say life begins at forty
Age is just a state of mind
If all thatīs true
You know that Iīve been dead for thirty nine

And if life begins at forty
Well I hope it ainīt the same
Itīs been tough enough without that stuff
I donīt wanna to be born again

Well I tried to sweep the slate clean
With a new broom evīryday
If that donīt work
Iīll jerk around until my next birthday

Yeah life begins at forty
Age is just a state of mind
Well if all thatīs true
You know that Iīve been dead for thirty nine.
