The Edge of 40

I know the reason all my clothes are feeling tight.

They’re tight, yeah, baby! So tight, yeah, baby!

I’m gaining inches ’round my thighs, my butt and waist each night.

I’m wearing miniskirts but at my age it’s wrong.

They’re tight, yeah, baby! So tight, yeah, baby!

The plus size section’s where my pocketbook belongs tonight.

[Bridge:]

It’s hard to suck it in, to hide my double chin.

I’ve let my body go, let my back fat show;

it’s something I’m not frightened of!

[Chorus:]

I’m on the edge of 40, and it’s time that I should look at the truth.

Out on the edge of 40 and I’m now admitting I’m past my youth.

I’m on the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge,

I’m on the edge of 40 and I’m hanging on my last scrap of youth.

I’m on the edge of youth.

 

I’ll purchase modest clothes to eat food that is fried.

They’re tight, yeah, baby! So tight, yeah, baby!

I’m on the edge of buying larger underwear tonight.

Put on a girdle so my jeans will fit the same.

They’re tight, yeah, baby! So tight, yeah, baby!

Metabolism and earth’s gravity are what I blame.

Alright! Alright!

[Bridge:]

It’s hard to suck it in, to hide my double chin.

I’ve let my body go, let my back fat show;

it’s something I’m not frightened of!

[Chorus:]

I’m on the edge of 40, and it’s time that I should look at the truth.

Out on the edge of 40 and I’m now admitting I’m past my youth.

I’m on the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge,

I’m on the edge of 40 and I’m hanging on my last scrap of youth.

 

I’m on the edge of youth.

I’m on the edge of youth.

I’m on the edge of youth.

I’m on the edge of youth.

[Chorus:]

I’m on the edge of 40, and it’s time that I should look at the truth.

Out on the edge of 40 and I’m now admitting I’m past my youth.

I’m on the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge,

I’m on the edge of 40 and I’m hanging on my last scrap of youth.

I’m on the edge of youth.
