Verse 1:

I have stumbled on a big conspiracy

Some sweet young things trying to steal something from me

I have earned my marks  by the sweat of my brow

It took along long time to look as good as I do now

 

Chorus:

Well I have earned my wrinkles (echo)

I have earned my wrinkles  (echo)

I have earned my wrinkles

Its not too late to earn your own

 

Verse 2

Want me to spend my money on botox and the like

I’d rather put my pennies, toward staying out at night

It’s fine if for your beauty sleep, you go to bed at 10,

but darlin’  that’s about the time I’m buying drinks for

   younger men    

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Bridge:            

You know they talk and talk about it

how our skin should be smooth

our shifting curves corrected, our cellulite removed.

But let me tell you people no matter what they said,

the only cure for aging—is being dead 

and I ain’t dead yet!

            

Repeat Chorus

 

Verse 3

I know you may be jealous because I am so wise,

and I have pretty patterns that decorate my eyes

I am who I am, Darlin, give yourself a break

You can look just like me, I swear its not too late

 

Repeat Chorus

I have earned my wrinkles, it’s not too late,

yes, I have earned my wrinkles, it’s not too late

I have earned my wrinkles, it’s not too late to earn your own!

Earned My Wrinkles
