Proud to be a Boomer

After hearing Owen’s epic performance of Proud to be a Boomer on UATV, I realized that the third line of the chorus needed to be fixed to fit the flow. Or, to be more precise, the punch. It was very amusing to tell him about this, because before I’d finished telling him the second line – I hadn’t told him the title or anything about the topic – he laughed and said, “I think I know where this is going!”


Proud to be a Boomer

If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,

Except my 401, my pension, and my second wife.

I’d thank my lucky stars that I am me instead of you.

I’ve got my generation and Bob Dylan and The Who.

I’m proud to be a Boomer ’cause this world was made for me.

And The Beatles were the greatest band in human history.

I’ll gladly stand up, lecture you, and tell you ’bout my youth,

Cause there ain’t no doubt I love myself

God knows that is the truth!

From the Moon landings of NASA, to the war in Vietnam.

From the muddy fields of Woodstock, to protesting the bomb.

From civil rights in Georgia to the riots in LA,

Well there’s pride in every Boomer heart,

It’s time we stand and say:

I’m proud to be a Boomer ’cause this world was made for me.

And The Beatles were the greatest band in human history.

I’ll gladly stand up, lecture you, and tell you you’re no good,

Cause there ain’t no doubt I love myself 

You’d Boomer if you could!

 At this rate, Owen will have a whole album – a vinyl LP, presumably – to record about Boomers by next week.
