Default I Wouldn't Change It


I see these young guys
With their good-looking women
Yeah, I'm a little jealous
But I'm still happy for them

I had my young years
And I did it my way
I've still got my son
And I still wouldn't trade

I Wouldn't Change It if I could
I couldn't change it if I would
I'll leave well enough alone
I know life goes on

I Wouldn't Change It if I could
I couldn't change it if I would
But can there be something else
Another way to please myself

My son's getting married
I may be a grandfather
That part's up to them
Whatever comes after

I still look around
I'm old but I'm not dead
Got a dozen young women
Messin' with my head

I Wouldn't Change It if I could
I couldn't change it if I would
I'll leave well enough alone
I know life goes on

I Wouldn't Change It if I could
I couldn't change it if I would
But can there be something else
Another way to please myself

Sweet young thing, move in with me
Flesh out this fantasy

It seems nostalgic, like wanting to return to a former time in one's life and longing for it.

I would like to return except for the fact that there is nothing there.
