about

Many of the songs in this album pay tribute to Madison and its joys, and “We’re Getting Older,” by John Feith, is no different. Although it ends in frantic disco (“Look around this crazy town. Doesn’t it just make you smile?”), it has a decidedly bluesy–jazz intro. Like Disco Haiku, the song plays with quickly shifting a key from major to minor. This time, the inspiration is Inara George’s “Fool’s Work,” which it directly quotes for three measures. The Beach Boys' “Fun, Fun, Fun” and even Charlie Brown’s “Chrismas Time Is Here” are also quoted. Like others in Dance Originality, the song has a Latinesque middle section, which again encourages letting go of inhibitions as a way to stay young or receive religion.

lyrics

9. W E ’ R E G E T T I N G O L D E R
Life can be hard but Life can be good to you—look around
until you find something that will make you smile
Life brings you down but from the ground something will grow
Poke around until you feel another root another sprout.
So sway with me— we’re getting older
Just sway for now— we’re getting older
Life can be hard, but life can be good to you— look around
until you find someone that will make you dance
Voices stay Young when they keep Singing along
Bodies stay Young when they keep Dancing along
Dance like you’re Naked, and you wanna Shake it
Life can be hard but Life can be good to you— look around this crazy town— doesn't it just make you Smile?
