Woman of a Certain Age Lyrics

2019 Off-Broadway
Broadway Bounty Hunter the Musical - Woman of a Certain Age Lyrics


STREET SINGER:
Good god, it’s later than she thought
Guess it’s time to start the daily grind
So many villains to be fought
Who try to tear apart her peace of mind

She applies the war paint to her face
Puts on her armor with uncommon grace
The elevator comes and she steps on
(the ding of an elevator.)
And she wonders where the good times gone

They’re not giving no free rides
They don’t lay their glitz on you
Just spinning b-sides
They don’t waste their hits on you
Try to bust out, they put ya back in that cage
When you’re a woman of a certain age

ANNIE:
Oh lord, my feet are falling off
Still got a thousand miles in front of me
I walk the city street, I cough
Guess these lungs just ain’t what they used to be

I see a hobo begging over there
Here have a dollar buddy, life ain’t fair

HOBO:
Mamma, hang on to your charity

HOBO & STREET SINGER:
Looks like you need it more than me

STREET SINGER, ENSEMBLE:
Cuz they’re not giving no free rides
They don’t lay their glitz on you
Just spinning b-sides
They don’t waste their hits on you
Try to bust out, they put ya back in that cage

STREET SINGER:
When you’re a woman of a certain age

Walk into the room, into the den
Of the firing squad
Feel the rising doom, and say amen,
Try to maintain the facade
Of cool

ANNIE:
Stay cool

ENSEMBLE:
Woman, you better stay cool

ANNIE:
Cuz they’re not giving no free rides
They don’t lay their glitz on you
Just spinning b-sides
They don’t waste their hits on you
Try to bust out, they put you back in that cage
When you’re a woman of a certain age

ENSEMBLE, ANNIE, STREET SINGER:
They don’t do ya no favor
Or hand ya no goodie bag
Sick of ya flavor
They think that you just a drag
Everyone laughs
While you be seething with rage

STREET SINGER:
When you’re a woman of a certain

ENSEMBLE, ANNIE:
Not giving no free rides
Just spinning b-sides

MEN:
You’re singing your song

Women:
They kick you off a the stage

ENSEMBLE:
When you’re a woman of a certain
Woman of a certain

ANNIE:
Woman of a certain age

ENSEMBLE:
When you’re a woman of a certain age
When you’re a woman
Eh eh eh
Age
