Gary Barlow - Before We Get Too Old Lyrics


feat. Avishai Cohen - אבישי כהן

A doctor friend of mine
I’d see from time to time
Had a design for his longevity
He said, «Exercise, my friend, that is the key
Exercise is what extends our life expectancy»
And when he sadly died
At the age of 35
Getting his clothes caught in a gym machine
The irony brought home to me
What you and I should take all this to mean

Let’s fall in love
Before we get too old
Ignoring all the reasons not to
No long term plans
Just be Peter Pans
Hang onto my hand and hold
Now, before we get too old

A gentleman I knew
Let his funds accrue
Until he’d a sizeable annuity
Saved, scrimped, cut back, forty-seven years
Planning to retire and sail the World on holiday
But tragic came the news
First day of his cruise
Slipped on a gangplank in the pouring rain
He saw the Earth
On traction in his berth
And in reaction, I thought once again

Let’s fall in love
Before we get too old
The future we can never know
Life is a car
That’s driving into snow
So hang onto my hand and hold
Now before we get too old

A man a lot like me
Proceeded cautiously
Now this I see to be a great mistake
Postpone the day to make your hay
You might find you can no longer lift your rake

Let’s fall in love
Before we get too old
We never get those days again
Some people say
You should ‘squirrel things away’
I say plant them and let’s see what grows
Tomorrow never ever knows
Just hang onto my hand and hold
Before we get too old
