Well I’ve reached the age of 50, my looks have fallen from grace.
So I head to the doctor to get a needle in my face.
Botulinum toxin is its scientific name,
But it’s better known as botox, yeah the two are the same.
I’ve got the upper middle-class midlife crisis blues.
Well a couple of shots in my chin. I welcome the holy syringe!
Put two shots in my forehead so I get a line-free fringe.
Put two shots in my cheekbones and also in my neck,
Yeah all it takes is a single 20,000-dollar cheque.
I’ve got the too-much-disposable income midlife crisis blues.
Yeah I really love the needle! Please stick it everywhere.
Please stick some my big toe and in my armpit hair.
Put two shots in my left hand and also in my right,
Then put some in my vocal cords [unintelligible]
