You’re Not 22 (I Will Survive Parody)

With love to my big brother on his 30th birthday.

At first I was afraid

I was petrified

I grew up with a big brother Moish

who had height and muscle on his side

But then I spent so many nights

Working out and getting strong

And then we grew up and

learned how to get along

And now you’re back

From LA

Came back to crash on my couch

even if it’s only for 2 days

I should have changed my f-ing lock

But I decided to leave you leave a key

But I have only one request

don’t make noise when you come in at 3

Oh now go

Walk out the door

Party for your birfday

Like you’re only 24

Weren’t you the one who said you’ll always be 18

Now you wonder,

Weren’t all those years really keen?

Oh no, not you

You’re not 22

As long as you keep aging you don’t know what to do

You’ve got all your life to live

And you’ve got all your love to give

But you’re not 22

You’re not 22

Yeah, Yeah

It took all the strength I had

Just to take the beat

I still have the scars to prove it

On my seat

Yoni and I spent so many minutes

Just thinking of these lyrics

he wanted to mention commandos

But I stood up and vetoed it

Now we remember

The days of old

Where the dead man run would knock us out good and cold

And so you thought i’d get up here

to make some fun of you and cause a fuss

But we’re gonna save our makin fun

for someone that can make fun of us

Oh now go

Walk out the door

Party for your birfday

Like you’re only 24

Weren’t you the one who said you’ll always be 18

Now you wonder,

Weren’t all those years really keen?

Oh no, not you

You’re not 22

As long as you keep aging you don’t know what to do

You’ve got all your life to live

And you’ve got all your love to give

But you’re not 22

You’re not 22

Yeah, Yeah
