lyrics

25 feels like nothing to me
I wish you’d stop pointing out
It’s a quarter century
Come and dance with abandon,
Be messy, and free
Here’s to life as a fresh 25

By 35 I’ll be working like crazy
Running some kind of company
And saving the planet
I’ll have moved from the city
To a town that’s more lazy
I’ll have a backyard when I’m 35

By 45 I think I’ll have it made
Or else I’ll be back in school
In the 29th grade
I’ll have married my true love
We might raise up some babies
But I’ll still be sassy when I’m 45

Though what if life doesn’t follow
My big plans
What if unforeseen barriers daunt me
Will my internal compass
Keep guiding me back
Or will the paths I abandon
Still haunt me?

Some day I’ll be retiring from…
Something
When I get that gold watch
I hope you’ll all still know me
We’ll shimmy and shake
With our arthritic knees
Like we did when I turned 25

‘Cause all I know is I love to dance
To be lost in the music and motion
And one thing that won’t change
Is I cherish my friends
Like they’re golden

25 feels like nothing to me
So let’s all stop pointing out
It’s quarter century
Come and dance with abandon
Be messy, and free
I don’t care how old you are
Pretend to be me
Let’s be young and immortal, and joyful
And we will remember
The rest of our lives
How it felt when I turned 25
When you turned 25 … we turned 25
How it felt when I turned 25
