Life Is Much Too Long

       You've had your fun when you're 31,
       still forty years to go
       Life is much too long, time is going slow

       You can't overlook your lifetime
       because you did so many things
       Life is much too long, time is going slow

       When you're dying it takes a month
       to recall the things you have done
       Life is much too long, time is going slow

       Man should live for 30 years,
       I think that's long enough
       Life is much too long, time is going slow

       Old people have too many things
       they want to talk about
       Life is much too long, time is going slow

 

Clearly written by a young person. This is also obvious from the Dutch English in this and many other songs.
