lyrics

Middle Ages
(Rogers)

Now that I've breached middle age, said Pierre
I find myself falling to fear and to hate
But this wouldn't be happening, I wouldn't even care
If I hadn't been born 700 years too late

Please let us live in the past
Where we won't have to pay the electric or gas
Please let us live in the woods
Where knights in black armor hold up the good

Oh Pierre, it's so clear that we're made for each other
Said his good wife Helene as she sat on her throne
I'd give them the Dodge, you know I'd give them the Duster
If they could just promise to leave us all alone

Please let us live in the past
Where we won't have to pay the electric or gas
Please let us live in the woods
Where knights in black armor hold up the good

Pierre brandished his sword and he dreamed of the year
When he'd singlehandedly vanquish the techs and the feds
But he'd taken out his Beltone so he didn't even hear
His Pacemaker battery go dead...

Please let us live in the past
Where we won't have to pay the electric or gas
Please let us live in the woods
Where knights in black armor hold up the good
