Lyrics:

Thank you for your generosity
This is a gesture of compassion to the elderly
You know, I was talking with some of the guys
Some of the guys in this band are kind of
You know over the hill
And they were talking about the
Various stages that a man goes through
In relation to his allure to the opposite sex
It was not a scientific evaluation
Just something that arose over a cup of coffee
It went something like this:
You start off irresistible
And, then you become resistible
And then you become transparent
Not exactly invisible, but as if you are seen
Through old plastic
And then you actually do become invisible
And then, and this is the most amazing transformation
You become repulsive
But that’s not, that’s not the end of the story
After repulsive, you become a cute
And that’s where I am

Yeah, my friends have gone and my hair is grey
And I ache in the places where I used to play
And I'm crazy for love, but I'm not coming on
I'm just paying my rent every day
In the Tower of Song
I'm just paying my rent every day
In the Tower of Song

Now, I said to Hank Williams: how lonely does it get?
Oh, Hank Williams he hasn't answered yet
Oh, but I hear him coughing all, all night long
Yeah, a hundred floors above me
In the Tower of Song
