You Look Pretty Good for Your Age

from Sometimes Mother Really Does Know Best

You are a bit younger
than I had expected
your voice makes you sound
so mature
I watched you drive your car
into the parking lot
I heard you come through the door

What brings you here
is the very same power
that draws me tonight to this stage
and I must say to you
with all sincerity
you look pretty good for your age

Now I know that your work
sometimes gives you a headache
causes you heartache as well
but it's not what defines
it's just what sustains you
if you're frustrated, no one can tell

Because right here and now
is all that matters
you're no longer pacing the cage
and I must say to you
with all sincerity
you look pretty good for your age

You could have stayed home
and turned on the TV
ordered in pizza and beer
but no you got dressed up
you put on cologne
someone's wearing Eternity
I can smell it from here

I feel like we've been set up
this is a blind date
who knows how we'll feel at the end
you might walk away wondering
'what the hell was that?'
or maybe I'll see you again

But now let's relax
take a deep breath
let the moonlight be our gauge
and again I repeat
(though it could be the heat)
you look pretty good . . .
you've been working out . . .
you look very good for your age
