Lyrics[edit]

    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    
    Don't let me hear you say life's taking you nowhere, angel
    Come get up my baby
    Look at that sky, life's begun
    Nights are warm and the days are young
    Come get up my baby
    
    There's my baby, lost that's all
    Once I'm begging you save her little soul
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Come get up my baby
    
    Last night they loved you, opening doors and pulling some strings, angel
    Come get up my baby
    In walked luck and you looked in time
    Never look back, walk tall, act fine
    Come get up my baby
    
    I'll stick with you baby for a thousand years
    Nothing's gonna touch you in these golden years, gold
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Come get up my baby
    
    Some of these days, and it won't be long
    Gonna drive back down where you once belonged
    In the back of a dream car twenty-foot long
    Don't cry my sweet, don't break my heart
    Doing all right, but you gotta get smart
    Wish upon, wish upon, day upon day, I believe oh Lord
    I believe all the way
    Come get up my baby
    Run for the shadows, run for the shadows, run for the shadows in these golden years
    
    There's my baby, lost thats all
    Once I'm begging you save her little soul
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Come get up my baby
    
    Don't let me hear you say life's taking you nowhere, angel
    Come get up my baby
    Run for the shadows, run for the shadows
    Run for the shadows in these golden years
    
    I'll stick with you baby for a thousand years
    Nothing's gonna touch you in these golden years, gold
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
    Golden years, gold whop whop whop
