Oh Paul, oh Paul, it’s time to rest,
don’t be the fool upon the hill
who carries on way past his best,
put down the bass, put down the quill,
you should have stopped at sixty-four,
and what's with the hair dye by the door.
You’re not alone of course, that’s true,
bare chested Roger’s guilty too,
and if Dave and Freddie hadn’t gone,
who knows – they might have carried on,
though some I think went far too soon,
like Buddy Holly and Keith Moon.
But yesterday’s done, why can’t you see,
Oh Paul it’s time to let it be.
