lyrics

57 times the earth’s been around the sun, I’ve been on that blue balloon
I’ve heard a voice from a transistor radio, talk about the men landing on the moon
I’ve seen a president resign and also a pope, I drank a little wine I smoked a little dope
I’ve never really been at the end of my rope, I’m a pretty lucky guy

57 times I’ve seen the seasons change, and I guess I’ve changed too
I’ve had long hair and short hair, too skinny, too heavy, but I’m still a New York liberal Jew
I’ve seen the towers fall, ive seen computers rise, ive seen companies grow and then downsize
Ive seen my wife smile with her eyes, I’m a pretty lucky guy

57 years old I am this week, sometimes I can’t believe it’s true
Some days aren’t perfect, but lots of time I get to do what I want to do
I’ve got no special phrase, which will surprise & amaze, just a bunch of songs documenting my days,
the route that I have taken thru this cosmic maze,
and by and large in so many ways I’m a pretty lucky guy

(c) M. Skliar
