Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I'm an old man trying to do a young man's job
Well the boys star right and roll it one timearound
Left allemande, come on and weave that old ring
Well I'm too darn old for this rock and roll
Swing your girl and promenade
I'm an old man trying to do a young man's job


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well the heads promenade about halfway around
Lead right and circle to a line, it's forward up and back
Pass thru, you bend the line, pass thruy, you wheel & deal
Swing thru, turn thru, your corner swing
Take her and promenade
I'm an old man trying to do a young man's job


TAG

I'm an old man trying to act like a young man
Old man trying to do a young man's job

Young Man's Job Lyrics ID: 2290

The lights come up for the thousandth time
And I stepped out on that stage again
With a little bit of gray in my ponytail
And trying to hold my stomach in

I sung my golden oldie
From my Fabulous Fifty's act
Then I did my old Chuck Berry hop
And I nearly broke my friggin' back

Now I'm an old man tryin' to do a young man's job
Bouncin' round the stage, not acting my age, and hopin' that I don't drop
Well, I'm too old for rock n' roll but I'm too damn poor to stop
I'm just an old man tryin' to be a young man,
Old man acting like a young man,
Old trying man to do a young man's job.

Then I come off of the stage with the sweats and the shakes
And this rug slipping off of my dome
And this sweet young waitress kindly volunteered
Said she'd like to drive me home

She helped me up the stairs and into my chair
Helped me off with my elevator shoes
Then she tucked me snuggly in my bed
And then she got in there, too!

I'm just an old man tryin' to do a young man's job
Bouncin' round the room goin' sha-boom sha-boom, hopin my heart don't stop
I'm too old for all this rock n' roll but I'm too damn vain to stop
I'm just an old man tryin' to do a young man's job.

I'm just an old man tryin' to do a young man's job
Bouncin' round the room goin' sha-boom sha-boom, hopin my heart don't stop
I'm too old for all this rock n' roll but I'm too damn vain to stop
I'm just an old man tryin' to be a young man,
Old man acting like a young man,
Old trying to do a young man's job.

Lyrics by Shel Silverstein.
Recorded by Old Dogs.
