Thirty-Nine & Holding Lyrics by Jerry Lee Lewis

 

Thirty-Nine & Holding by Jerry Lee Lewis


He's out there somewhere every night
Where the music's playing loud
Doing all the 50's steps, in a 1980 crowd
The dim lights hide his millage lines
The Clairol hides the gray
And he won't mention anything
That gives his age away
Lord, he's thirty-nine and holding
Holding everything he can
From seventeen to twenty-five
He'll prove he's still a man
He's holding to a candle
And it's burning at both ends
He's thirty-nine and holding
Holding everything he can
You can bet he'll never see
Thirty-nine again
He should have turned loose long ago
But still he's hangin' it in
He still thinks that he is the man
That he used to be
He's thirty-nine and holding
And acting twenty-three
Lord, He's thirty-nine and holding
Holding everything he can
From seventeen to twenty-five
To prove he's still a man
He's holding to a candle
My God, it's burning at both ends
He's thirty-nine and holding
Holding everything he can
